There will also be no downtime between Competitive seasons.
Along with confirming its next hero coming to Overwatch, Blizzard Entertainment has also revealed that season 14 of Competitive Play will be ending on February 28th. If you haven’t done your placement matches or grinded to the top 500, then you have until Thursday, 4 PM PST to do so. As for Season 15, it will be going live on the same day at the same time.
That’s because there will be no downtime between seasons going forward. As soon as season 14 concludes, you can hop right into placement matches for season 15. For extra fun, try completing your season 14 placement matches in the morning and then log in before the evening for season 15’s placements. It’s the perfect recipe for fun!
There’s no word on when Overwatch’s 30th hero, Baptiste will be coming to the game. However, going by previous hero announcements around this time every year, we can expect a release on the Public Test Realm server within the next week. Live servers on all platforms can probably expect to play with Baptiste by the third week of March.
