This looks to be one of the most significantly different seasons that Overwatch 2 has had to date, and there’s a lot to look forward to. Notably, Pharah players will get to experience an entirely new hero as the rework they’ve been waiting for finally rolls out.

Such a large patch will need a large download, so you’ll want to be ready to get into the game as soon as you can. To help you organize your schedule, here is a look at exactly when season nine will begin in Overwatch 2.

Overwatch 2 Season 9 start date and time

Overwatch 2 Season 9 is scheduled to start at 2pm ET on Feb. 13, 2024. This should be the case unless there are any last-minute delays.

That means it should land at the following times in other timezones:

  • 11am PT
  • 1pm CT
  • 7pm GMT
  • 7pm UTC

Once this new update arrives you’ll notice that all of the major changes teased in the patch notes will be live including the ranked rework, and Pharah changes. There will be a lot to get familiar with over the next few weeks.

Should there be any last-minute changes to the planned release of this season have no fear! This article will be updated to reflect the new information, but given how close we are to the release it doesn’t seem likely that this will be the case.
