When will Overwatch Season 23 start? The start date for Overwatch competitive season 23 is expected to be sometime over the summer. Players are looking forward to the next competitive season because it will bring back competitive open queue.

According to a developer update, competitive open queue will be out of the arcade and under the competitive tab. Competitive open queue is a competitive mode where players get one rank and do not select their role prior to getting in a game. Competitive open queue was the only competitive mode prior to season 18, when role queue began.
