When does Summer Games start in Overwatch 2020? The event is at most hours away from launch, as Blizzard has previously announced an Aug. 4 start date. When it arrives, it'll bring plenty of new cosmetics including two Legendary skins revealed by the official Overwatch Twitter account this week. Here's when the event will go live in-game.

Although Blizzard has not announced an official Summer Games start time beyond Tuesday, Overwatch seasonal events tend to kick off at 2 p.m. ET on their scheduled start days. It's likely Summer Games will follow that precedent.

As of writing, the update has yet to hit live servers. As a result, players are still waiting to get their hands on Lifeguard Pharah and Surf's Up Echo. Blizzard revealed the two Legendary skins via Twitter Monday, with more set to be unveiled when the update becomes playable.
