If you are looking forward to the next season of Overwatch 2, then here’s when it begins.

Overwatch 2 Season 4 start date

As expected, the Overwatch 2 Season 4 start date will be on April 11, 2023. The beginning of the new season was announced through the game’s official Twitter account as part of the reveal for Lifeweaver, the new ranged support hero. Every season in Overwatch 2 lasts for nine weeks. The next one begins as soon as the previous one ends and it looks like that pattern won’t be changing with this next one.

While we now know that Season 4 in Overwatch 2 will begin on April 11, the team has still been very quiet about what else we will see in the new season. We may soon get more information with it being only a handful of days away, but we think they are just merely trying to be secretive and build up hype slowly at this point. Here are the list of things we know about the new season so far:

  • New support hero named Lifeweaver
  • Map pools are being removed
  • Seasonal decay is removed from Competitive
  • New battle pass with a Mythic skin
  • Potential map changes (maybe in a later season)

There will surely be plenty of new additions that you can purchase with the arrival of Season 4 so we recommend reading up on how to earn coins in Overwatch 2 beforehand.
