Overwatch 2 launches with cross-progression, here’s how to make sure your account is ready

After years of fans yearning for a way to merge their Overwatch profiles across consoles, Blizzard is finally adding cross-progression to the popular first-person hero shooter. With the addition of this feature, players will be able to access all their in-game cosmetics and stats regardless of which platform they are playing on. The merger will officially take effect on October 4 — the same day Overwatch 2 launches — though those who want to take advantage of cross-progression can enable the feature starting today.

Merging your different Overwatch accounts into one comprehensive profile is as easy as logging into one of the systems you play on. After logging in, you should immediately be prompted to identify, select, and confirm the accounts you want to merge. Players can merge a account from any of the following platforms: Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
