October is almost here, which means that fans will be able to get their hands on the free-to-play Overwatch 2. With some players who bought the first game what will happen to their progress, Blizzard has assured that they will be able to merge accounts with the sequel, and then some.

Cross-Progression Coming to Overwatch 2

As per the official Overwatch site, cross progression will be coming to Overwatch 2. That means that you can carry over all of your progress and cosmetics from the first game and bring them over to the sequel; and what’s more you do it across platforms. They write:

With the launch of cross-progression, players can merge multiple Overwatch accounts to carry progression and in-game cosmetics into Overwatch 2 on a single profile. Starting August 16, every player with a linked console account will be prompted at login to identify, select, and confirm the accounts you want to merge. Once you approve, we will prepare your accounts to be merged during the release of Overwatch 2.

Every player will need a account to play Overwatch anyway, so it shouldn’t be an issue for players who own the game on whichever platform. While there will be some players that will get in for free, the fans who did end up paying for the game do get some exclusives as well as the benefit of having the option to bring in all of their earned cosmetics.

With Jeff Kaplan leaving, and the game currently in a complicated state, a lot of fans are hoping that this sequel will rejuvenate the franchise that brought hero shooters to the spotlight back in 2016.

Overwatch 2 is expected to launch for free this Oct. 4 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, PlayStation 4|5, and Nintendo Switch.
