Existing in-game credits will transfer to Overwatch 2 at launch in October

As Overwatch 2 will replace the original Overwatch once it's available, players have several questions about the transition.

Specifically, how in-game credits and loot boxes will transfer from Overwatch to Overwatch 2.

We have more insight into the switch as several Overwatch 2 team members jumped online to hold an AMA.

As revealed in the AMA, all older in-game credits will transfer over to Overwatch 2, including OWL talents, competitive points, and even lootboxes.

Unfortunately, the use for the legacy credits will be limited in Overwatch 2 as it will be replaced by a new virtual currency.

In addition, Blizzard will force open all remaining lootboxes once Overwatch 2 launches.

We will find out more about Overwatch 2 as we come closer to its soft launch in October.
