Blizzard has announced the launch of cross-progression for Overwatch 2, enabling you to merge multiple Overwatch accounts using a single battle.net account. Once you've merged accounts, all of your Overwatch progression, including in-game cosmetics, will move with you on one, unified profile.
From today, you'll be prompted upon logging in to “identify, select, and confirm the accounts you want to merge,” which once approved will prepare your accounts for merging in time for the Early Access release of Overwatch 2 this October.
Bear in mind that you'll only have one opportunity to merge your console accounts for Overwatch 2, so Blizzard advises that you "double-check which accounts you are merging before you confirm”.
