Overwatch 2’s next Season will crossover with Diablo

Despite owning a great deal of well-known IPs, Blizzard has historically kept many of them separate, even in this era of collaborations and crossovers. Finally, two of the company’s biggest games are set to crossover as Overwatch Season 7 is confirmed to include Diablo-inspired content.

Teasing the upcoming 7th season of Overwatch, Blizzard took to Twitter to say: “Might want to keep the lights on for this one #Overwatch2 Season 7: Rise of Darkness launches Oct 10.”

Alongside confirmation of its launch date, the team released a brief teaser showcasing the Halloween-inspired changes coming with the upcoming update.

The Junkstein’s Revenge co-op mode will be returning, this time taking over the Tristram Cathedral section of Blizzard World. A new map – Salmon – is also being added to the general game rotation.

Perhaps the most interesting announcement came in the form of confirmation that Season 7 of Overwatch 2 will be crossing over with Blizzard’s other popular IP: Diablo IV. This will take the form of cosmetics which can be acquired, including a new skin for Moira which transforms her into Diablo IV’s poster child ‘Lillith’. Additionally, Overwatch character Wrecking Ball looks to also be getting a Diablo-inspired outfit.

October has always been an exciting month for Overwatch fans, thanks to its annual Halloween events and whatnot. It will be interesting to see the full extent of the Diablo crossover – and what other future plans Blizzard has for collaborations.
