Overwatch 2's launch has been rocky, to say the least, and we have faithfully chronicled its every twist and turn. From relentless DDoS attacks to the controversial phone number requirement removal, to the pulling of several characters due to bugs. Despite it all, we think the game is great and look forward to its future once the teething issues are ironed out.
Blizzard obviously feels the same and wants to reward its dedicated fanbase for sticking with them through it all. In a statement, the company thanks players and promises that progress is being made to address the issues currently plaguing the game, with a patch coming later this week.
In addition, we can all look forward to several Double Match XP weekends, which will help us to make up for the lost time. There is no date for those yet, but we will let you know once they are announced. Also, players who log in after 25th October through to the end of Season 1 will receive the Cursed Captain Reaper Legendary skin (pictured above) and a Health Pack Weapon Charm.
It's nice to see, and a positive story for a change. What do you think Blizzard's make-good? Let us know in the comments section below.
