Overwatch 2 gets free cross-progression and migration support
Overwatch 2 is almost here, and yesterday (16th) the Blizzard confirmed that the cross-progression (cross-progress) is now available at all platforms, from consoles to PC, also explaining how the process will work. Understand next!
Starting today, you who own the original game will be able to merge your different accounts and take them to the new version, as Overwatch 2 will replace the old game when it becomes available for free to everyone on October 4th.
The only catch is that you can only match this profile once, so make sure you’re logged into the right Battle.Net account, especially if you have different smurf accounts!
To do this on PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S or Xbox One, log in to the desired platform, follow the on-screen prompts and scan the QR code with your mobile phone, enter the code shown on the console to link the account, then confirm the procedure by logging in.
If you only play on the computer, you don’t need to do anything else, as the migration will happen automatically when Overwatch 2 comes out, so these steps are valid for those who play on the console and want to unify their video game account for the computer. Upon completing the merge, all items you own will appear in your Battle.net account, and your stats such as total game hours will also be added up!
