When a new season starts in Overwatch 2, ranks will be reset and players will have to be placed again. Blizzard has also revealed that it will be doing away with Loot Boxes and introducing a Battle Pass system. It appears that Blizzard will look to have a new Battle Pass available at the start of every season, as well as at least one Mythic Skin.
