Overwatch Servers To Go Live At 2 PM Eastern Time Launch Day

Thinking you’ll be able to start building Tracer straight away? Hold up.

Overwatch launches on the 15th, but not at any of the standard times.

Nintendo’s eShop page for the game has been updated to state the following: “Overwatch® launches globally on October 15, 2019 at 11:00am PT”. First party Nintendo titles routinely unlock at midnight Eastern time on launch day, while third party preloads generally unlock at noon Eastern. This will also presumably affect physical copies which include a download code and will be available for purchase that morning.

This is because Blizzard generally releases patches at that time and there's going to be both a major balance patch and the Halloween Event expected to drop that day.

Shame about the exploding scandal w/ Blizzard. Hopefully they get their head back in the game.

Hope no one buys it. Between their silly China policy and their CEO likely being a pedo...
