Need to know when Season 7 of Overwatch 2 officially ends? It will be your last chance to grind the battle pass and earn those rewards, so it’s important for players to know.

Overwatch 2 Season 7, The Rise of Darkness, featured plenty of new content. From a new battle pass to play through to the new map being released, we’re sad to say goodbye. But, Season 8 is on its way, so it’s time to usher in the new and say goodbye to the old. When does Season 7 end? We’re here to let you know all the details.

When does Season 7 of Overwatch 2 end?

Overwatch 2 Season 7 will end the same day that Season 8 releases, which is on Tuesday, December 5, 2023. That will be the last chance to play The Rise of Darkness before the new Call of the Hunt. Season 8 will immediately take Season 7’s place, so you’ll have plenty of new things to do.

Season 7 has been running successfully since October 2023, featuring all the new content players expect of an Overwatch 2 season. While it wasn’t quite as impactful as Season 6 Invasion, there was still plenty to enjoy, such as the Diablo crossover and new mythic Hanzo skin.

End Time prediction for Overwatch 2 Season 7

There isn’t an official end time for Season 7 yet, other than the in-game battle pass timer. However, based on previous seasons, we can expect that Season 7 will end at the following times:

  • December 5, 2023 at 12 PM PST
  • December 5, 2023 at 3 PM EST
  • December 5, 2023 at 8 PM BST

This is when we predict the Rise of Darkness will end, although we recommend not waiting until these times to log in. The game will go down for a bit before coming back up to kick off Season 8.

There’s plenty to look forward to with the new season, including the new hero Mauga being released and a new game mode on the way.

The Return of the King

For those who miss the beloved Hanamura map from the original Overwatch, Season 8 will introduce the map’s spritual successor: Hanaoka. The map features the same beautiful architecture and scenery as the original, but reworked.

That’s everything you need to know about when Season 7 of Overwatch 2 comes to an end. Be sure to check out the Overwatch 2 Flashpoint guide so you can dominate in the game mode during both Season 7 and Season 8.
