The release date for Overwatch 2 Season 4 is set for April 11, 2023, according to the in-game countdown on the current Battle Pass.

Overwatch 2 Season 4 new hero

Overwatch 2 Season 4’s new hero is Lifeweaver. They are the first post-launch hero in the Support category. The hero was announced on Twitter by the Overwatch account.
