Overwatch Comes To Switch Next Month

Overwatch Comes To Switch Next Month

One of the Nintendo Direct announcements has leaked early: Blizzard’s popular hero shooter Overwatch is coming to the Switch. It’ll be out next month.

Word on this one comes from a couple of retail leaks, and we’ve confirmed its veracity with two of our own sources. Last month, Amazon accidentally spilled the beans on an official Overwatch Switch case, and today, a European retail leak points to the port’s release date as October 18.

Overwatch launched in May of 2016 for PS4, PC, and Xbox One, and has since been regularly updated with new characters, events, and patches. We expect the official Switch announcement during Nintendo’s Direct stream at 0800 AEST. We also expect lots more Overwatch news at this year’s BlizzCon in November.


  • Finally Blizzard is bringing Overwatch to the Nintendo Switch that’s great news and the fact that it’s coming out on October 15 that’s even better I’m definitely getting Overwatch when it comes out next month.
    Thank you very much Blizzard Entertainment very excited for that.
