Overwatch 2 Beta Not Found in Battle.net – New Fix Discovered

If, like many other fans, your Overwatch 2 PVP Beta trial isn’t appearing in Battle.net, here’s a new fix to help you get playing.

Overwatch 2’s PVP Beta is in full swing, and players are getting the chance to go hands-on with Blizzard’s new title. The new PVP Beta offers new maps, a new gamemode, and even boasts a new hero to play!

And while the ongoing Beta isn’t everything fans were hoping for, it’s at least nice to see Overwatch getting some attention again. In fact, Overwatch 2 views exploded on Twitch recently, while Beta keys were on offer for the hero shooter.

If you missed out, you can get another Overwatch 2 key through Twitch streams very soon!

  • You should get the option to claim your Overwatch 2 PVP Beta, even if you’ve done so before.
  • Then, waiting 30 minutes to an hour should be enough time.
  • Check the Battle.net launcher and hit the drop-down menu in the bottom left where it says Game Version.
  • You should now see Overwatch 2 Tech Beta and can install it freely! Thanks to Battle.net forum user GipsyAvenger for sharing this potential solution!

But those who are playing the Beta aren’t 100% on board with the game’s changes. In fact, Overwatch 2 Support players are having a bad time.

In addition, while graphics have had a boost, not all the game’s new visuals are hitting the mark. And those who grinded in Overwatch for golden weapons seem disappointed with changes to the prestigious cosmetics.
