Overwatch 2: How to merge multiple accounts into one profile - FAQ

from Karsten Scholz
Blizzard developers have released an extensive FAQ to help you merge progress from multiple Overwatch accounts into one profile. Finally, Overwatch 2 supports cross-platform progression.

As is well known, on October 4, 2022 the Overwatch 2 Free2Play release on the schedule, but will only provide us with the PvP content for now. The first PvE campaigns and hero missions will probably not be integrated into the game until 2023. But it’s included the function of cross-platform progress, or also called cross-progression. In other words, the PC and the consoles will share one account from now on.

Overwatch 2 Account Merge FAQ

If you’re one of those Overwatch players who own multiple accounts across multiple platforms, you can merge those accounts into one Overwatch 2 profile. In this way you have access to your entire game progress as well as your earned cosmetic items in one account.

  • Starting August 16, all players with a linked console account will be prompted to identify, select, and confirm the accounts they wish to merge upon login. Once you have confirmed this, the developers will prepare to merge your accounts in time for the release of Overwatch 2.
