Overwatch has currently been in an interesting state with the meta seemingly being more focused on playing at range than before. That said heroes like Widowmaker are still not having a fun time due to the shields of Sigma keeping her at bay. This season has also had the Lunar New Year event Bounty Hunter added to it and that has been a fun addition. With Blizzconline hopefully having some information about Overwatch 2 and what fans can expect for the current Overwatch, it will be interesting to see what comes with the start of Competitive Season 27.
Even with consistent patches coming out, Overwatch seems to be in a bit of a holding pattern. Echo was said to be the last hero coming out for the original Overwatch until Overwatch 2 came out. Now that it looks like the game is likely going to be delayed, if it hasn’t already been, it would seem to make sense that Blizzard might change its plans. There is no way to know for sure but should a new hero be announced at Blizzcon it would certainly make things interesting for the next few competitive seasons.
Seeing as season 26 began in early January, the two-month schedule for current seasons would seem to point to Overwatch Competitive Season 27 start date being in early March.
After an error set it back, it has been confirmed that Overwatch Competitive Season 27 will start on Tuesday, March 9.
It seems likely that there will be no events in Season 27 as the only one that might overlap would be the anniversary event. That is not until May though so it may correlate more with the beginning of Season 28.
Either way, another season for the Overwatch faithful to grind will be coming up soon. With more patches to hit as well, make sure to stay up to date with everything in order to climb faster.
