Overwatch 2 Download Size: Console and PC

Activision Blizzard

Blizzard have revealed that download sizes for Overwatch 2 on both PC and Console ahead of its launch next week.

With the long-awaited Overwatch 2 set to launch in just under a week, plenty of players are wondering just how much space they'll need to clear in order to download the game. Whether you're planning on pre-loading it ahead of time or downloading it immediately on release, it helps to know what sizes you can expect.

Thankfully, Blizzard have put together a little pre-launch checklist, so players can be well equipped when the game launches on Oct. 4. Here's what you need to know.

What Size Will Overwatch 2 be on Console and PC?

For PC players, Overwatch 2 will be an approximately 50 GB download size. Players will also be able to pre-load the game at 1:30 p.m. PDT on Sept. 30. Those with automatic updates enabled on Battle.net will have the download happen automatically in the background. To download it manually, click on the gear icon on the right side of the play button and select "Check for Updates."

Console players will sadly only be able to pre-download the game on launch day, at 9:00 a.m. PDT on Oct. 4. The game will then go live at approximately 12:00 p.m. PDT, Oct. 4. Fortunately, the download size is expected to be smaller, at roughly 30 GB.
