Well, here's all you need to know about the Overwatch 2 Season 2 end time.

What time will Overwatch Season 2 End?

With Overwatch 2 set to conclude on February 7, players will be counting down the clock to get their hands on the Junker Queen Mythic skin if they already haven't done so.

Overwatch 2 Season 3 is currently predicted to land at 7pm GMT, meaning Season 2 will end at approximately 6:59pm GMT. That said, there could be a maintenance window in between.

For more Overwatch Season 2 end times in other regions you can reference this list below:

  • 11am Pacific Time (US)
  • 2pm Eastern Time (US)
  • 7pm GMT (UK)
  • 8pm CET (Germany)
  • 3am CST (China), February 8
  • 6am AEDT (Sydney, Australia) February 8

When Will Overwatch Season 3 Start?

The conclusion of Season 2 will see Season 3 instantly take over. Given that it's natural for a bit of maintenance time whilst the developers push the season live, you could start working your way towards the next battle pass mythic skin (Amaterasi Kiriku) a mere few seconds after the 7pm GMT start time.

Players can already pre-download the Season 3 update before the Overwatch 2 Season 2 end time if they're playing through PC with automatic downloads activated to Battle.net. However, console players will have to wait until the update is live before it's available to be installed.

Overwatch 2 Season 3 will also bring a new map to the sequel title and will last for ten weeks.
