Overwatch is Blizzard's upcoming team-based multiplayer shooter that has already enjoyed several closed betas. Recently an advert accidentally went live on IGN revealing the game's release date as well as the date of the open beta.
The advert was screen-captured by Reddit userbefore it was taken down. The launch date will apparently be the 24th May, 2016, with the open beta starting on the 4th May for those who pre-order the game by 29th April, after which the deal expires.
