Overwatch Loot Boxes To Be Removed From Sale Soon

No more buying of loot boxes anymore!

Blizzard recently announced that the Overwatch loot boxes will now be removed from sale soon.

Overwatch Loot Box Sale Ending Date

In a recent blog post, Blizzard confirmed that the loot boxes will be gone from the game’s store within this month. According to the developers, the end date of sale for the loot boxes will be on August 30, 2022.

Big Chance to Acquire Rare Items

For players who were really into loot boxes, this will be their chance to get some very rare items from previous Anniversaries and seasonal events. They were advised not to wait too long to get those skins that they have been checking out for the past year.

Standard loot boxes will still remain in the game but via progression only. Players will not be able to buy those loot boxes anymore.

Overwatch 2 Will Not Have Loot Boxes

Overwatch 2 will be launching on October 4, 2022, and it will have a big difference from the original. It will be a free-to-play early access title. Also, it will not have any loot boxes, but instead, it will have a season battle pass and an in-game premium item store.
