It appears as though Blizzard’s newest game Overwatch will officially release May 24th 2016. This information was leaked by an advertisement on IGN which was posted by mistake and has since been removed. The ad however was posted to reddit and can be seen below.


As you can see the game seemingly will be released on the same day for PS4, Xbox One and PC and pre-ordering the game appears to give you access to an Open Beta that starts May 3rd. Overwatch is a classed-based Multiplayer shooter marking Blizzard’s first foray into that market. It is also a full priced retail release, a different model from a few of their latest releases. No official word yet from Blizzard but one can assume they will officially announce the release date shortly.
