Overwatch Season 28 start date is around the corner with times, rewards, and patch notes.

So much has happened during Season 27, from Game Director Jeff Kaplan leaving, Archive event ending, and the anticipation of Overwatch Anniversary set to be announced around the end of May; new seasons entering their next interval follow soon after. Season 27 is ending May 6 and Season 28 should start the following day before the Overwatch Anniversary event. Season 28 will start on the month of the game's five-year anniversary, which could be Overwatch's most exciting season yet.

Season 28 Rewards

Overwatch players are expecting to get new rewards such as icons, emotes, sprays, and poses that represent the new season. This would hopefully give players enough time to grind for at least two weeks before the Overwatch Anniversary official announcement is made and the rewards are set; even if the event is launched early, players still win at the end of the day from all the rewards to choose and win from.

Patch Notes

The previous patch notes that buffed heroes' damage and abilities like Pharah's hover jet regeneration, Genji's shuriken recovery time, and Baptiste health support increase for other heroes on the battlefield, made the competition more aggressive going head-on. It will be interesting when developers adjust heroes again to balance out certain characters on the next patch note for the new season.

There have been no patch note updates for the month of May yet, for more information check out the Overwatch Patch Note list.
