How to Fix Overwatch 2 Beta Not Showing Up in Battle.net Launcher

If you should have Overwatch 2 Beta access but it’s not appearing in the Battle.net launcher, there’s a simple fix that some players are using to jump in.

Right now, the internet is obsessed with Overwatch 2 and its ongoing PVP Beta. This gameplay is the first chance we’ve had to see the major overhaul in action, and it’s proving very popular.

Already, Overwatch 2’s Beta is taking over Twitch, and players are still waiting on those invites from Blizzard.

Many of those who signed up for the test are still awaiting their emails from the Overwatch developer.

However, there’s a possible fix for those who still haven’t received their Overwatch 2 Beta invite! Make sure to check it out and potentially get yourself access now!

But for those who have their invites but no Overwatch 2 Beta is appearing in Battle.net, here’s a quick fix to try!

Overwatch 2 Beta Not Available in Battle.net After Invite

Did you get your Overwatch 2 Beta invite via email, but Battle.net doesn’t show the game anywhere? Here’s a potential fix to help get you playing!

  • First and foremost, be sure to check that the email you registered for Overwatch 2 Beta access is the same as the one you’re currently signed into Battle.net with.
  • Next, you’ll also want to click the dropdown menu underneath Game Version in the bottom right. If you see, Overwatch 2 Tech Beta, you’re in! But if you still don’t have access, keep reading.

  • An easy solution to this issue appears to be making sure Overwatch is installed, and booting it up.
  • Once open, simply close the game, click the Globe next to Game Version, and change your region to Europe. Then boot up to the start menu again.
  • After closing the game, check your Game Version menu again and the Beta may have appeared.

UPDATE: If this didn’t work for you, there’s a new method that’s working for many fans! Check it out below:

This changing region trick has seemingly worked for many Overwatch fans out there, but sadly only seems to be a solution for some. If you haven’t got access yet, today is the day though!

I used to play OW on console and the OW2 beta has resparked my interest. I got the twitch drop and claimed it. Then realized I had never purchased the game on my PC. I downloaded the free trial version but now I'm afraid that claiming the drop without owning the game might've fucked me lol I'll keep trying and hope I'm wrong

Dang didn't work. Literally 20 of my friends are playing the beta right now and I have waited an hour and a half after redeeming it on Twitch, everything is linked right. This sucks
