Overwatch 2 Season 11 is set to be the next major update for Blizzard’s ongoing Hero shooter, so here’s everything we know about it so far, from the release date to the leaked theme.

Overwatch 2 players are already looking ahead to Season 11 after Season 10 introduced Venture and the new Mythic Shop. As is the case with every major update, it’s expected to deliver a ton of fresh content to get stuck into, some of which has already been announced.

So, here’s everything we know about Overwatch 2 Season 11 so far, including the release date.

Overwatch 2 Season 11 release date

Overwatch 2 Season 11 is currently due to begin on Thursday, June 20, 2024, as this is when the Season 10 Battle Pass timer expires. However, this would break the tradition of new seasons beginning on a Tuesday, so we expect this to be moved to either June 18 or June 25 in the future.

Of course, it’s possible that the devs are mixing things up with Season 11, so we’ll be sure to update this page with any announcements either way.

Overwatch 2 Season 11 theme leaked

Overwatch 2 Season 11 will reportedly have a ‘monster’ theme, based on skins uncovered by dataminers. Leakers found new skins for Lucio, Zenyatta, and Roadhog, all of which were based on different mythical beasts, such as a Kaiju.

Each new OW season features a distinct theme that ties into the title and overall vibe of the Battle Pass, but we’ll have to wait for an official announcement to see exactly what the focus will be.

Is there a new Hero in Overwatch 2 Season 11?

No, there will not be a new Hero released in Overwatch 2 Season 11. Blizzard have committed to releasing new characters every two seasons, and after Venture arrived last time around, Season 11 will instead introduce a new map.

This means that the next new Hero will drop in Season 12 – the Support codenamed “Space Ranger” who was revealed back at Blizzcon 2023.

Overwatch 2 Season 11 new map and changes

Overwatch 2 Season 11 will bring a brand-new Push map called Runasapi, set in the titular Previvian city. It was revealed in a Developer Update back in March and is tied to Illari’s backstory, as the Support Hero is a member of the Inti Warriors that guarded the area.

On top of this, fellow Push map Colosseo will be given an overhaul, but details on what the changes will be are yet to be revealed.

Overwatch 2 Season 11 expected content

Since Overwatch 2 Season 11 is still some way off, the full slate of content hasn’t been announced just yet. That being said, there are a handful of additions that arrive with each major update.

With this in mind, here’s everything we expect to see in Overwatch 2 Season 11:

  • New Battle Pass
  • Events
  • New map
  • Hero buffs and nerfs
  • New skins
