The Overwatch 2 launch trailer for Season 9 was released on February 7, and with it, we got a look at the upcoming collaboration with Cowboy Bebop. Here is everything we know about it so far. 

Overwatch 2 has done a few crossovers already with Diablo 4, One-Punch Man, and K-Pop band Le Sserafim. Now, it looks like the next collab we’re getting will be with classic space western Cowboy Bebop. 

The collaboration was teased at the end of the Season 9 launch trailer, showing a western themed Route 66 and Cassidy in a new skin that we couldn’t make out just yet. Here is everything we know about the collab so far

Overwatch 2 x Cowboy Bebop release date 

There is no release date for the Overwatch 2 x Cowboy Bebop Collab yet. 

Although, since we can assume it’s coming in Season 9, it can be anytime between February 13 and the end of the season. Seasons usually run for around nine weeks, so we could see the event come to the game officially in March as well. 

Overwatch 2 x Cowboy Bebop skins

While there is no confirmation for the Overwatch 2 skins that will come with the Cowboy Bebop collab, there are some theories that Cassidy will get a Spike skin

The only reason we even know it’s coming is because of a stinger at the end of the season launch video featuring Cassidy on the western-themed Route 66 map. After a coin is tossed in a jukebox, we hear the iconic horns from Cowboy Bebop’s show’s opening song, “Tank!”

Featuring Cassidy in the trailer is also what has led fans to believe that he will receive a Spike-themed skin, as he was the main protagonist of Cowboy Bebop.

Other skins that could be coming include ones themed around Faye, Jett, and Ed, and fans seem to believe that Ashe is a shoo-in for one of the other Heroes who will be part of this collab. 

Overwatch 2 Season 9 begins on February 13 with an Eldritch Horror theme and a complete overhaul to Competitive Play. As soon as we have more information on the Cowboy Bebop collab, we will keep you updated.
