As we prepare to welcome new and returning heroes with the launch of Overwatch 2 on October 4th, we have a quick update about forum access post launch.
At launch, access to discussion channels will only be available to players who previously owned Overwatch. Anyone with a valid Overwatch license, including those who bought the Watchpoint pack before October 4th, will continue to be able to access all discussion channels. We will be adding functionality in an upcoming update that will grant forum access to new players based on reaching certain milestones in-game. Anyone with a Battle.net account will continue to have access to the Technical-Support and Bug-Report channels, to report any issues with installing or playing Overwatch 2, in addition to our regular support tickets through the Customer Support Portal.
Thank you and we’ll see you in-game!
