Plenty has been said about Overwatch 2 since it launched as a free-to-play title, from criticisms with 5v5 to the rate of balance changes for certain heroes. However, the lack of tangible rewards from simply playing the game and not spending any money is still a common complaint, especially with the Battle of Olympus limited-time mode.
Executive producer Jared Neuss previously said the team was looking at Battle Pass changes from Season 3 onwards, along with more “interesting Challenges” and “more exciting play-focused progression systems.” In a recent tweet, he confirmed that updates were coming next season to “help address the lack of choice in rewards.” Details are “vague” for now.
Of course, this could mean anything, so don’t expect Overwatch Coins in the Battle Pass. Season 3 is confirmed to have a new Battle Pass, while the long-awaited PvE content is coming later this year. In the meantime, a patch is out later this month to nerf Roadhog, while the next event, Lunar New Year, starts on January 17th and ends on February 1st. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
