Despite an earlier promise that Overwatch and Overwatch 2 would peacefully coexist, we recently learned that there can be only one. And now we have a date for when Overwatch prime goes offline: October 2nd.

In an interview with Eurogamer, Overwatch commercial lead Jon Spector explained that on October 2nd, Overwatch prime will die, and for roughly 24 hours, the game will be offline to make way for Crystal Overwatch — err— Overwatch 2 on October 4th.

“So that means, as a practical point, that October 2nd really is the last day to go in and play Overwatch 1,” Spector told Eurogamer.

The arrival of Overwatch 2 brings with it significant and permanent changes to the game. With a little less than three weeks left, here’s a list of things going away when Overwatch prime get’s Old Yeller’d:

  • The assault game mode
  • The joy of a six-player earthshatter
  • The Space Jam
  • Trashing the arcade before the gates open at Hanamura
  • Watching players try and fail to jump this gap
  • And this one

Get those last sweet, sweet assault matches in while you still can.
