The Overwatch World Cup Returns In 2023

After three years away, Blizzard has announced that the Overwatch World Cup is returning for 2023, and the competition will be bigger than ever; new game, new players, and new ways of spotlighting your country and region on a global scale. Additional program details will be revealed in the coming months.

In January, Blizzard will announce the 36 countries and regions competing in the 2023 Overwatch World Cup, and that’s also when competition committee applications will open. Each competition committee will be responsible for organizing tryouts for their country and region, following Blizzard guidelines.

Alongside regular tryouts, Blizzard is also introducing a new avenue for players to compete for a spot on their team. This comes in the form of an open tournament format: World Cup Trials. In February, the World Cup Trials competition will earn winning players a direct spot in the tryouts for their team. Players will still be able to sign up for regular tryouts taking place in March. Regular tryouts will have a Competitive Rank requirement of Diamond and above. In addition, Blizzard will also be offering some challenges and rewards for all players to help celebrate the return of the Overwatch World Cup.

In June 2023, after the team rosters are finalized, the Overwatch World Cup qualifiers are planned to take place through a regional online competition, narrowing down 36 teams to 16 for the next phase of the tournament. Those 16 teams will then battle it out in a LAN environment in the fall of 2023 to determine our first World Cup champion since 2019.
