Overwatch beta extended by 24 hours

The Overwatch open beta has been extended by 24 hours on all platforms, Blizzard has announced.

If you’ve been busy playing Overwatch over the weekend, then we have some good news for you.

The open beta currently taking place on PS4, Xbox One and PC has been extended by 24 hours, and will now conclude at 10AM PDT/6PM GMT on Tuesday, May 10.

“We hope everyone has been enjoying the Overwatch Open Beta,” community manager Lylirra wrote on

“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 one day on all platforms. This means the beta will now conclude on May 10 at 10:00 a.m. PDT in all regions.”
