Overwatch's Season 21 start date has been set and it is not too far in the future. Overwatch Season 20 has run for a bit more than a month and is set to come to a close.

Season 21 of Overwatch will go live right after the current season ends.

The main goal of the new season is to test out the new hero pools, which will limit heroes from being overused each week.

The start date for Season 21 has been set, so when is it?

With Season 20 planned to come to an end on March 5, the start of Season 21 will come on the following day, likely in the early afternoon.

With the release of Season 21 coming on March 5, the Overwatch League will begin using the new hero pools on March 7. The League's use of this makes it so that certain heroes will be unavailable in a match and the same heroes won't be unavailable two weeks in a row.
