Overwatch is getting a new seasonal event format for the first time in over five years and we have everything you need to know about the Overwatch Anniversary Remix event release date, start time, and contents below. If you’re expecting new content, don’t – Blizzard’s full focus is on the hero shooter’s sequel and the approaching Overwatch 2 beta release date, according to community manager Andy Belford.
Instead, when we hit the Overwatch Anniversary Remix event release date, players will be able to jump into returning Brawls (like Lucio Ball and Mei’s Snowball Adventure) and unlock returning limited-time mini-event skins (like Ana’s Bastet and Cole’s Deadlock skin). For this event, the newest content being released is a set of recoloured legendary skins – these include Witch Mercy, Cultist Zenyatta, and Black Cat D.Va.
If you’re still looking forward to this event, keep reading – we have the latest information on the release date, start time, and what to expect below.

Overwatch Anniversary Remix event start time
If you’re wondering when the event actually starts, though, you’re not alone. At the moment, Blizzard has not confirmed when the Overwatch Anniversary Remix event start time is. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t make an educated guess.
In the past, Overwatch events have started between 11:00 PST / 14:00 EST / 18:00 GMT and 12:00 PST / 15:00 EST / 19:00 GMT. We expect the Overwatch Anniversary Remix event to follow a similar pattern and be available at one of these times – however, take this prediction with a grain of salt until we know more from an official source.
Well, that’s all we know about the Overwatch Anniversary Remix event release date so far – be sure to check back as we’ll be updating this guide with the latest information when it is available.
