How Much Will Overwatch 2 Cost?

The Overwatch fan base are eagerly awaiting the sequel to Blizzard Entertainment’s 6v6 shooter, and they shouldn’t have to wait long, but the question remains – how much will Overwatch 2 cost?

Overwatch 1 was released way back in 2016, and the Standard Edition launched at a price point of $39.99. It’s rather unlikely that Overwatch 2 will meet this same cost however, thanks to inflation and the rising price of new releases, it’s more likely to be around $60, as the next-gen games usually are.

Overwatch 2’s exclusive PVE content, in the form of hundreds of Story and Hero Missions, will likely be part of that price gouge also.

is overwatch 2 going to be free?

It is unlikely that Overwatch 2 will be completely free, but as both OW and OW2 players will be able to play in the same matchmade lobbies, the PVP portion of the game will continue to be free if you own Overwatch.

You don’t need to buy Overwatch 2 to play the OW2 new PVP modes and maps, as they will be updated in the original title also. However, for PVE content, Overwatch 2 will have to be purchased at the possible price point of $60+.

Will overwatch 2 be free if you have overwatch?

Not quite. If you own Overwatch 1, all the new maps of OW2 and PVP battles will be available to you, as will being able to play multiplayer with Overwatch 2 friends. The two games will always be compatible, as OW will receive all upcoming PVP updates that Overwatch 2 implements.
