Blizzard has continued to lean into seasons in Overwatch 2 as a method of evolution to keep the game feeling fresh.

Overwatch players endured 35 competitive seasons over six years, from season one in 2016 to season 35 in 2022. Over that period, 11 new heroes and 20 new maps were released. Seasons lasted roughly two months apiece, which also holds true in Overwatch 2.

When does the current Overwatch 2 season end?

We are currently in Overwatch 2’s ninth season. Overwatch season nine started on Tuesday, Feb. 13, 2024, and according to the in-game timer for the season’s battle pass, it’ll wrap up on April 9, 2024, followed immediately by season 10.

While this hasn’t been formally confirmed by Blizzard at the time of writing, this would mean season nine runs for roughly two months, which is how long seasons in Overwatch 2 typically last. Check out the official list of Overwatch 2’s season nine patch notes and available battle pass skins here.
