Overwatch players are excited for the upcoming Overwatch 2 which will be released in a couple of months. In the meantime, players who were selected have the opportunity to beta test the game, and have early access to the changes heroes are receiving.

Blizzard announced it will extend the June 28 patch to end July 19 at 2 p.m. EST. The extension will grant Overwatch players 24 additional hours of access to the beta.

Access to beta testing is released in waves based on how much server capacity is available. Players must register with their Blizzard.net account no later than a set date to be added to the beta tester list.

After the two patches that have been released for the OW2 beta, players have shared their feedback with the developers, and Blizzard is making changes according to what players have to say. Blizzard will continue to balance heroes based on their findings from the beta.

Over the next few weeks, Blizzard will share more information about the data that was collected throughout beta. Blizzard has also mentioned it has new features and content that it will be sharing in the next couple of months.

Overwatch 2 is set to be released in Oct. 4, and will be free to play on PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch.
