The Overwatch open beta appears to have gone very well. So well in fact that Blizzard has decided to add an extra day to it. As revealed on the Battle.net forums, the open beta will now go on until May 10th:
“We hope everyone has been enjoying the Overwatch Open Beta. We certainly have! We’ve loved being able to play alongside you on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Over the last week, we’ve also had the opportunity to listen to your thoughts and opinions on the game; make improvements based on your reports in these very forums; and collect invaluable data just from you playing normally.
We couldn’t be more grateful. So, as a small way of saying “thank you” to our community and the millions of players who’ve logged in so far, we will be extending the Open Beta by 1 day on all platforms. This means the beta will now conclude on May 10 at 10:00 a.m. PDT in all regions.”
Overwatch itself will launch on May 24th on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
