Overwatch fans are excited to find out the start date for season 22. Season 21 saw the rise and fall of hero bans and was the season that ended the map pools. Season 22 will certainly bring with it even more changes.

But when does it start? Here's everything you need to know.

Overwatch Season 22 Start Date: When Does Season 22 Start?

Overwatch competitive season 22 could start as soon as this weekend. Blizzard has not yet announced an official end date for season 21 or an official start date or time for season 22, though based on previous seasons the end date expects to be sometime this week.

For the moment season 22 will only have hero bans in Master and Grandmaster competitive games. That could change throughout the season. The first set of banned heroes is continued from the end of season 21 and will be Reinhardt, Ashe, Reaper, and Brigitte.

Although season 22 will not be bringing any new heroes, the continued changes to the hero bans will keep the season fresh and exciting. The sprays for the season are also the first to be hero instead of map-based so it's impossible to predict what else will make this season special.
