The release date for Blizzard’s team-based shooter Overwatch has been leaked. Interestingly enough the leak comes from an advertisement on IGN. According to the advertisement Overwatch will be released May 24, 2016. Those who happen to pre-order will get early access to the open beta.
Blizzard has not confirmed this release date and since the above screenshot was taken the advertisement has been taken down. We should expect to see an official announcement from Blizzard soon.
Overwatch was officially announced at BlizzCon 2014. It will be released on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
“Overwatch is a 6v6 shooter that takes place on Earth in the near future, where teams of soldiers, scientists, adventurers, and oddities clash for control of iconic locations around the world. The game features a diverse cast of 21 heroes—each with their own unique arsenal of weapons and abilities—who bend time and defy physics as they work together to complete objectives with their allies. Teamwork is critical as players swap heroes on the fly and combine their powers to game-changing effect—the action is intense, with a focus on immediacy and fun.”
