The ongoing Overwatch 2 Season 8 is in its concluding phase with just one week left for the battle pass to end.
This will be followed by Overwatch 2 Season 9 introducing multiple new changes and features to the game.
Here are details about when Overwatch 2 Season 9 is scheduled to release and a preview of what it may contain.

Overwatch 2 Season 9 is just a week away from release and will be bringing with it a slew of changes including tank and damage heroes getting the ability to self heal, changes to how competitive matches work, jade tier weapon skins, and a new battle pass.

Now, the only question that remains to be answered is when does Overwatch 2 Season 9 start? How much time will the players get to enjoy all its features and complete the new battle pass that comes along?


Overwatch 2 Season 9: Start Date, Time, and Total Duration

The players had a ball of a time during Overwatch 2 Season 8 which was released on 5th December which brought along the hyped tank hero Mauga along with a new battle pass mechanic that enables players to get any Mythic Skin of their choice.

While most players had already play-tested Mauga ahead of release, the ability to choose a Mythic Skin after having completed the battle pass was a home run.

It not only allowed players to get their hands on the skin they adored and of a hero they were more likely to play with, but also encouraged more players to purchase the seasonal battle pass which now offered something extra.


After running for more than two months, Season 8 is in its final week, set to pave the way for Overwatch 2 Season 9 which is scheduled to release on 13th February.
