Overwatch Archives 2021: Overwatch Archives event 2021 start Today?

Blizzard has confirmed that the Overwatch Archives 2021 flagship event will kick off this week on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

Overwatch Archives event 2021 promises new unlockable skins and cosmetics with the return of Event Loot Chests.

The development team was busy showcasing the latest designs, with the latest Musketeer Widowmaker featured.

Musketeer Widowmaker has an 18th-century feel, with a plum helmet and matchstick weapon.

Some other models are expected to launch before the big release date, as gamers will receive the new update this week.


Blizzard confirmed that the return of the Overwatch Archive event 2021 has a release date set for Tuesday, April 6.

It will be a unified launch, which means players from all platforms will be able to access it simultaneously.

The only thing to note is that Blizzard never provides a specific time for the arrival of the next patch.

However, based on past events, we expect the release time for the Overwatch Archives event to be around 7 PM GMT.

For those who aren’t logged into this particular event, Overwatch Archives gives players a chance to bring life back to important places and stories from the series’ history.

The official description reads: “Explore story-driven collaborative missions from pivotal moments in Overwatch history.”

“While the event is active, earn archival loot boxes with skins and showcase introductions, emotions, and sprinklers inspired by moments from Overwatch’s past.”
