Claimed a Twitch drop but not getting access to the beta? Here's what you need to check if Overwatch 2 Beta is not showing up in Battlenet.

Fans who are curious and excited to play Overwatch 2, the brand new title in the series, are frustrated because the beta is not showing up in Battlenet. What is the reason behind it and is there anything you can do to fix it? Here’s what you need to know.

Why is Overwatch 2 Beta Not Showing Up in Battlenet?


If you have claimed a Twitch drop or got access to Overwatch 2 PvP beta via email, you should immediately see the game in the Battlenet client. But in case it is not showing up, don’t worry because it’s an issue that thedevelopers are already investigating. Although it may take time, if you have already linked your Twitch/Battlenet accounts with each other, you will be able to see Overwatch 2 in your launcher and get access soon. You might have to wait for a few hours or even a day or two.

Apart from this, another reason is the sheer amount of players trying to access the game. The devs are working hard to keep up with the increased demand from players old and new. Remember to avoid disconnecting your Battlenet account and reconnecting in the hopes to make things work, because it will only delay the process. Check if you have used the right accounts and emails associated with them.
