Overwatch 2 is the long-awaited sequel to Overwatch, a multiplayer hero-based shooter initially released in 2016. Fans have high expectations for the title, including modern features such as cross-progression. This may leave you wondering if Overwatch 2 will have cross-progression.
The answer is yes—Overwatch 2 does have cross-progression, according to a press release on June 12, 2022. This means you will be able to play the sequel on any platform and still maintain your progress across all of them. With a multiplatform release, this is a great feature to have, as it allows you to pick up and play anywhere come release day.
Unfortunately, the extent to which items will be enabled for cross-progression is not known. The original Overwatch allowed stats and cosmetics to be shared between consoles, but this may not be true for the sequel.
How to enable cross-progression in Overwatch 2
There are no official details regarding this yet, but you will likely need to link your console to your Battle.net account to enable cross-progression. This is how Blizzard handles cross-progression on their other titles, so it would make sense for Overwatch to follow suit. We will update this guide if more concrete details are shared.
