Overwatch loot boxes and coins: Blizzard details what will happen to them when Overwatch 2 arrives

The release of Overwatch 2 is approaching, next June 28th we have PvP beta on consoles and on October 4th the game will be released in early access. Blizzard is already detailing everything so there are no doubts.

Since it’s going to be free to play, it’s coming from a paid game and it’s not as definite a sequel as other games, Overwatch 2 has raised some questions, especially linked to the progress of the players who have tasted the first title of this hero shooter franchise.

We have already been able to learn that Overwatch 2 ditches loot boxes for a Battle Pass, but what will happen to the materials we had in the account from the first game: unopened boxes, coins and others…


Overwatch 2 – June 16 Event

Well, to clarify all this, Blizzard has used a new Reddit AMA, where Overwatch’s business leader, Jon Spector, wanted to clarify some of these points about what will happen to coins and loot boxes.

Although it is assured that the information will be clarified later in a more extensive official statement, you can rest assured, because you’re not going to lose anything you had in Overwatch.

We will share a more detailed explanation on all of these topics before Overwatch 2 launches in October.Spector commented.

However, to give you a quick answer now, those existing currencies (Credits, OWL Tokens, and Competitive Points) will be coming with you in Overwatch 2.

We are not carrying over loot boxes to Overwatch 2, and prior to launch, any unopened loot boxes will automatically open and your account will receive all content directly.

Therefore, you also won’t have to worry about opening or installing the game again to redeem everything you had if you feared it would be lost. Once you open Overwatch 2, the rewards will be there.

Looking forward to this sequel? Overwatch 2 has detailed its new Junker Queen character with action-packed gameplay. We already know her abilities. Meanwhile, Bobby Kotick has been re-elected CEO of Activision Blizzard with 82% of the shareholder votes.
