According to an advert that surfaced on IGN (via. GameSpot), Overwatch is set for launch on May 24. Whilst the ad was quickly removed, screenshots of the game’s release date have since been posted on Reddit.
Alongside the release date, the advert also mentions that open beta access to Overwatch will be coming on May 3, to those who preorder the multiplayer shooter.
Blizzard hasn’t yet announced an official launch date for the upcoming title, although previously confirmed that it will release this year. The company have also yet to give a statement regarding the Overwatch advertisement, so it’s quite possible the date featured in the ad was put there in lieu of an official date.
Overwatch was confirmed by Blizzard for PS4 and Xbox One in November 2015, after previously being announced for PC only. The standard edition of Overwatch on PC will cost $40 (£36), whilst Xbox One and PS4 versions will be $60 (£44). Game director Jeff Kaplan, however, has claimed that all characters and maps released post-launch will be free (via. GameSpot).
