Today’s patch is delayed as we work to resolve a critical issue. We’ll provide an update here and set the patch live as soon as the problem is addressed.

This includes the upcoming balance changes, bug fixes, including those that affect Mei, and core content updates we have planned for this patch. This delay also impacts the delivery of Overwatch League Viewership Incentives & Perks from the Postseason matches during the period between Oct 30 - Nov 4, along with the rotation of cosmetics in the Overwatch League shop.

Daily and weekly challenges will reset today, as well as the standard shop refresh.

Thanks for your understanding, we’ll be working on releasing this patch as soon as possible. Follow our forums and socials at @PlayOverwatch for updates.

UPDATE 4:00 PM PST, 11/15 - We are now planning to release this mid-season patch on Thursday, November 17 at 11 AM PST. Thank you to our players for your patience as we addressed...

Hello everyone,

We are temporarily disabling Mei to address a bug with her Ice Wall ability that allowed heroes to reach unintended locations when used with their abilities. We are working to address these issues as quickly as possible and aim to bring Mei back in our next upcoming patch which is set for November 15. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

As a reminder, our Blizzard In-Game Code of Conduct specifies that exploiting in-game bugs to gain an unfair advantage is considered cheating and should be reported using our ...

Shortly after the launch of Overwatch 2, we discovered a bug that was causing console-specific career profile stats to be reset for players each time they played a game of Overwatch on console. This bug was due to the statistics data initially using any PC pool stats to build on instead of console pool stats, even if a player does not play on the PC platform. We have deployed a fix to this bug, and games completed on console platforms after the fix will correctly store statistics on career profiles. We are now working on restoring stats from Overwatch to all Overwatch 2 console accounts and will do that for all console players. Unfortunately, due to the nature of this bug, any stats from matches played since October 4 through October 18, 2022 will not be recoverable and will not be reflected in your current career profile. Here are a few questions and answers to understand how this will affect players.

Q. What data has been lost?
Any console-specific mat...

Double XP Weekends are here! Starting today, your accumulated match XP from each match played will be doubled during eligible weekends. Please note any XP rewarded for completing challenges, bonus XP for participating in flex queue or impacted roles in Role Queue, and any XP rewards from endorsements are not doubled during double XP weekends. You can earn double XP for matches played on these dates:

  • October 21 – 11:00 AM PDT to October 24 – 11:00 AM PDT
  • October 28 – 11:00 AM PDT to October 31 – 11:00 AM PDT
  • November 24 – 11:00 AM PDT to November 28 – 11:00 AM PDT

When you receive double XP for your matches played, you should see the total number of XP after each match be higher than normal. However, during our first two double XP weekends, no direct in-game messaging will indicate XP has been doubled. We will be adding messaging in-game coming in future double XP weekends.

Greetings Heroes,

Get your kunai blades ready because you can now play Kiriko in Competitive Play starting today. Also, based on what we’ve seen so far with our challenge system and feedback from players, we have made some adjustments to make the team kills based challenges easier to complete. The “Cleaning House” weekly challenge will reduce the number of team kills required from 20 to 10. The “Finish Them” daily challenge will reduce the number of team kills from 3 to 1. Thank you, everyone, for your continued feedback, and we will continue to iterate on your Overwatch 2 gameplay experience.

The premium Battle Pass priced at 1,000 OW Coins does not come with any unlocked tiers, but you do get 20% bonus XP for the remainder of your progression of the Battle Pass.

You may need to follow this procedure to reclaim your Widowmaker Noire Preorder skin. If you can let me know if this works, it would be appreciated.

The Overwatch 2 Watchpoint Pack does not come with the bonus twenty tiers unlocked. There is a separate Premium Battle Pass listing that comes with the 20 tiers unlocked however purchasing the Watchpoint Pack will make that option no longer available for purchase. The Watchpoint Pack does come with the season 1 premium battle pass and an additional 2,000 Overwatch Coins which you can use those coins to buy additional tiers if you want. Learn more about the Watchpoint Pack here.
