The Overwatch Open Beta gets an extension!

If you are anything like me, the idea of having the Overwatch beta end tomorrow just makes you sad.

Luckily you don’t have to say goodbye just yet. Blizzard have announced  that the beta is getting an extension until the 10th of May.

We hope everyone has been enjoying the Overwatch Open Beta. We certainly have! We’ve loved being able to play alongside you on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Over the last week, we’ve also had the opportunity to listen to your thoughts and opinions on the game; make improvements based on your reports in these very forums; and collect invaluable data just from you playing normally.

We couldn’t be more grateful. So, as a small way of saying “thank you” to our community and the millions of players who’ve logged in so far, we will be extending the Open Beta by 1 day on all platforms. This means the beta will now conclude on May 10 at 10:00 a.m. PDT in all regions.

Enjoy the 24 hours of overtime, and we hope to see you again May 24!
