A survey had recently done the rounds for Overwatch 2, asking players how likely they were to purchase cosmetics for certain prices. Some of the prices mentioned include $45 Mythic Skins, $25 Legendary Skins and $10 Weapon Charms. Even if it was to gauge interest, players freaked out.

A Blizzard spokesperson has since confirmed to IGN that the prices in the survey are “not indicative of final pricing.” “This survey is entirely intended to better understand player preferences for different types of Overwatch 2 cosmetics. Prices displayed in the survey were randomized per user and are not indicative of final pricing. We plan to share details on our Shop and Battle Pass system closer to our Oct. 4 launch.”

The idea seems to be gathering data from a wide range of players and finding a happy medium for its cosmetic prices. Blizzard has already confirmed that the Battle Pass will cost 1,000 Virtual Currency, which should be around $10 to $15. Loot boxes are also going away – any remaining when jumping from Overwatch 1 to 2 will be automatically opened.

The sequel is currently in development for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, PC and Nintendo Switch. It will enter early access as a free-to-play title in October and receive new maps, heroes, and cosmetics in future seasons.
