Overwatch Beta Calls It Quits From Next Week
The Overwatch closed beta has been running for quite a while and it looks like it’s showing some signs of fatigue. This closed beta will be running until the 10th of December, after which it will be taken offline for a well deserved break.

Fear not however, this isn’t the end of the closed beta for Overwatch.
The Overwatch closed beta will close on the 10th, with the beta forums closing on the 18th, for a break until January. This is probably to give the developers a bit of a breather to enjoy the holiday season, because heroes need breaks too.
Even though this period is ending, it doesn’t mean current participants will be losing access. If you were invited during this closed beta, you will still be able to access the game once the next closed beta period opens up around the middle of January.
Of course it’s not really going to be a holiday for the devs, as they are aiming to make improvements to the game as well as continue to work on some of the features that are in-development, such as spectating and their progressions system.
From what we’ve seen of Overwatch, it looks interesting. What we’ve heard about the game however paints a very different picture. It’ll be interesting to see how Blizzard combats some of the issues players currently have with the game.
Hopefully once the game comes back they will open it up to a much larger player-base. Even though the game seems to have quite a few players in the closed beta, it definitely feels like Blizzard have selected a very select crowd to test it for now.
