The buzz surrounding Overwatch 2 is reaching a fever pitch, and as more information is revealed, many keen Overwatch players are desperate to find out when they can test the sequel for themselves.

Beta testing is the norm for game releases these days, but it can be difficult to sign up, as they are usually closed betas with limited space, or region/platform locked.

An Overwatch 2 beta has been all but confirmed by Blizzard Entertainment’s technical director John Lafluer, who answered a question regarding the likelihood of a beta during a Reddit AMA with “almost certainly, yes”. He then added, “if I knew when, I couldn’t tell you. If I told you, I’d have to kill you”.

So, we know there will be an Overwatch 2 beta, but no idea when. Although, we can get you ready to sign up when the time comes, so you don't miss out on testing the new 5v5 gameplay that OW2 will offer.

How To Sign Up For The Overwatch 2 Closed Beta

When an Overwatch 2 beta is made available, here are the steps to sign up.

  • Head to Blizzard.com and log in to your account
  • Navigate to your ‘Games and Subscriptions’ page
  • Scroll down to ‘Beta Profile Settings’
  • Click that, and select Overwatch 2 Beta to opt-in

We would highly recommend checking back every now and again to see if the opt-in option has become available for the beta, or it has appeared on the list of games available for upcoming beta tests.

Overwatch 2 beta release date

As 2022 seems like the best bet for a release window for Overwatch 2, players should expect a beta towards the end of 2021. Keep an eye out for Overwatch 2 appearing on the list of betas on Blizzard's website, and make sure you opt-in!
