Overwatch 2 Season 3 release date, roadmap, more

Want to know about the new content in the third season of Overwatch 2? Here is everything you need to know, including the Overwatch 2 Season 3 release date

Overwatch 2 Season 3 Release Date: Kiriko can be seen

Overwatch 2’s seasonal updates are well underway, now being a few weeks into Season 2 but when is the Overwatch 2 Season 3 release date? Various changes and updates have been introduced and players have had the chance to dig into Ramattra, Overwatch 2’s second-season hero. With that said, players are excited for even more new content coming to the game.

The world of Overwatch is ever-changing, but one constant of Overwatch 2 is heroes being disabled. For the latest news, check out how a new Overwatch 2 Bastion bug could see him disabled again soon. If improving your competitive experience is your goal, then it’s worth understanding the current Overwatch 2 win rate for each hero to know which characters could give you a leg up in the Overwatch 2 ranks.

When is the Overwatch 2 Season 3 release date?

The Overwatch 2 Season 3 release date is set for February 7, 2023, as confirmed by Blizzard. This will launch nine weeks after the last season.

As we experienced with the release date of the past two Seasons, Overwatch 2 season length is typically about nine weeks each. Given that Overwatch 2’s second season launched on December 6, 2022, nine weeks to the Overwatch 2 Season 3 release date on February 7, 2022, shows Blizzard is still hitting that deadline. As always, it’s possible that Blizzard could change its plans and shift the release date, or it could get delayed.

Overwatch 2 Season 3 gameplay?

Overwatch 2 Season 3 will undoubtedly bring with it a wave of hero and game mode balance changes to shake up and improve the gameplay experience. More interestingly, however, Overwatch Season 3 will mark the start of a trend for future seasons offering either a new map or a new hero. While Overwatch 2’s starting seasons came with both new maps and heroes, Season 3 will offer only a new map. Season 4, on the other hand, should bring with it the unknown new healer character to the game.

Overwatch 2 Season 3 Mythic skin

The Overwatch 2 Season 3 Mythic skin is for Kiriko and is Amaterasu Kiriko. This will be available in Season 3 and can be purchased for free. This is the first time this can be done for a Mythic skin. Free credits will be available in the season’s battle pass.

That’s currently everything we know about the Overwatch 2 Season 3 release date, roadmap, and other important information. We will keep this guide updated once more Blizzard shines a light on the specific changes and new additions to its hit hero shooter. While we wait for the exciting new content, you can read all about a hilarious Overwatch 2 Mercy bug that lets you insta-heal teammates, one of many entertaining bugs the game has seen since its release.
