The Overwatch 2 PvP Beta will end on May 17, 2022. Developer Blizzard confirmed this in an FAQ shared at the start of the beta. As for a specific time, Blizzard doesn’t specify, but the Overwatch 2 PvP Beta went live on April 26 at 11 a.m. PT/2 p.m. ET, so it’s possible that it will end at the same time on May 17. Blizzard also stated that the end date is subject to change, so it is possible we could see the end pushed back or moved up.

When the Overwatch 2 PvP Beta ends, servers for it will be pulled down, and players will no longer be able to queue for matchmaking. Luckily, Blizzard has already confirmed that there will be more betas ahead of Overwatch 2’s launch, so this won’t be the last chance to play the game before release. As the first Overwatch 2 PvP Beta, it’s only available for PC. It’s likely that future betas will allow players on consoles a chance to go hands-on with the game.

The Overwatch 2 PvP Beta will end on May 17, 2022. Until then, players on PC are free to jump in and check out the character overhauls, as well as the new map, game mode, and Hero. For more on Overwatch 2, stick with us here on Shacknews.
