Overwatch 2 Season 3 release date: When is it?
A new year ushers in a fresh batch of Overwatch 2 content. Season 2 of the game is still ongoing, but the first major update of 2023 starting with Season 3 will bring expected changes to the game. This may include new heroes, maps, and balance changes. Here’s what we know about the Overwatch 2 Season 3 release date.
Overwatch 2 Season 2 began on December 6th and brought with it a ton of game changes and new content. Players could earn seasonal skins during the Winter Wonderland event, and on January 5, the Battle for Olympus event began, which features Greek mythology skins and a limited-time deathmatch mode that changes the way some heroes play and gives them power legendary Skills.
Perhaps the most anticipated content additions arriving with new competitive seasons are new heroes and maps that drastically change the gameplay landscape. Season 2 brought Ramattra, a new tank hero, as well as the Shambali Monastary Escort map.
No Overwatch 2 Season 3 release date has been officially announced, but based on previous release patterns, Season 3 will likely arrive on Tuesday February 7th. Since Season 2 came out in the first week of December and Overwatch seasons typically last around nine weeks, the next season should be ready in early February.
As for content expected to release alongside the new season in February, Blizzard Commercial Lead John Spector has stated that the team plans to add a “more solid support” hero in early 2023 as part of a shift in focus through development Team to strengthen the role. Aside from this exciting clue, however, details about the event are scarce.
Recent changes from the January 5 update included multi-hero balance updates and the addition of the Battle for Olympus event, along with the usual bug fixes. Similar content can likely be expected with the release of Season 3, although we will provide additional information as it becomes available.
