Overwatch 2 had a successful launch and a busy Season 1. With the game's Halloween event now coming to an end, fans are starting to look towards Season 2, details on which remains surprisingly thin.
Blizzard has, however, confirmed that Overwatch 2's next character would be coming in Season 2. The latest tank character in question is Ramattra, who veteran fans may recall seeing in the ending cutscene of the Overwatch Storm Rising event. But when exactly will Ramattra release in Overwatch 2 Season 2?
6 December 2022 update: Ramattra released in Overwatch 2 on 6 December 2022.
Ramattra Release Date In Overwatch 2
Overwatch 2 Season 2 kicks off on 6th December 2022, which is the same date that Ramattra will release in-game. Like Kiriko before it, Ramattra will be available immediately for players who purchase the premium battle pass and at level 55 for free players.
For those unaware, Ramattra has two combat forms: Omnic and Nemesis. While we are yet to see this new character in action, the screenshots revealed so far gives a vague idea of how these abilities would function.
According to Overwatch 2's official website, "Originally a war machine, Ramattra shed his munitions for a shield to protect his people by promoting peace and tranquility. His ideals weren’t far removed from his fellow Shambli monk, Zenyatta. However, Ramattra’s story is one of hardships, trauma, and a magnified view of humanity’s harsh realities."
Players should expect more info on Ramattra closer to the launch of Overwatch 2 Season 2.
