There are a few weeks left until Overwatch 2, the long-awaited Blizzard title, hits stores completely free of charge for all users, and news and new details about the studio’s work continue to come to light, clarifying many aspects of the sequel. . But today we have learned a new piece of news that affects both the first installment and the second, since Overwatch loot boxes will stop selling after August 30.
This news we have been able to know thanks to a publication in the game official websitewhere we can read that the loot box system, which has been present in the game since its inception, will disappear after the 30th day (clarify that it will only disappear for users who want to buy them, since they will continue to be obtained by playing).
Overwatch loot boxes will stop selling after August 30
Overwatch 2 will not receive any more betas until its launch in October
Of course, when the sequel is released, and the first Overwatch is no longer accessible, the loot box system will be completely removed, since in Overwatch 2 we will have the current “Battle Pass” system something much more in line with the current state of the industry. We hope that Blizzard does not take advantage and start releasing character skins at exorbitant prices, as we have already been reading in several surveys that the company itself has done.
