Overwatch is dead, long live Overwatch 2: what time do servers open and what is its download size?

We tell you what time the servers of Overwatch will close and the date on which the servers of its sequel, which will be free to play, will be activated.

On Monday, October 3, Overwatch and its servers will say goodbye forever. The game will stop working from 12:00 pm ET / 11:00 am CT / 9:00 am PT and thus begin migrating to Overwatch 2, operational from October 4. Launched on May 3, 2016, Overwatch came, saw, and conquered. With it, Blizzard entered through the big door in the world of shooters and delighted us with a unique competitive proposal and a MOBA touch that changed the established order in the genre. Its Metacritic average rating of 91 and the huge community forged throughout all this time corroborate this.

To celebrate this transition and say goodbye to Tracer and company as they deserve, the official Overwatch accounts in networks invite us to share these days our best moments and anecdotes with the rest of players.

Overwatch 2: release date, time and size of the game

One big news of Overwatch 2 is that the game will be free to play for everyone, so anyone can download it and try it once the migration is completed and the servers are activated. And when will this be? Well, in just a few hours. Specifically, the date marked on the calendar is Tuesday, October 4 at 12:00 PM PT. From then on we will be able to install its 30 or 50 GB (30 on consoles, 50 on PC) and start playing online.
