Yesterday, Blizzard mistakenly ended the Overwatch Uprising event early. As an apology for the inconvenience, they’ve re-enabled Uprising and it will now end at 5pm PT/8pm ET today on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Uprising Loot Boxes and the ability to unlock Uprising-themed cosmetics with credits were re-enabled last night, and shortly after that, the King’s Row Uprising brawl was brought back online. To bring the brawl up again though, Blizzard had to release Overwatch update 2.12, which is an 86MB download.
Here’s Blizzard’s full statement on re-enabling Uprising:
Earlier this evening, our Overwatch Uprising event ended earlier than intended. This was a mistake, and we’ve already re-enabled Uprising Loot Boxes as well as the ability to unlock Overwatch Uprising-themed cosmetics with credits on all platforms.
We’re also currently working to re-enable the King’s Row Uprising brawl. Unfortunately, the process of re-enabling the brawl will take a few hours to complete as well as a small update. If you are online at the time that the update is deployed, you will need to log out and log back in before you play the King’s Row Uprising brawl again.
Apologies for the inconvenience, and thanks so much for your patience! Overwatch Uprising will formally conclude in all regions on all platforms on May 2 at 5pm PDT.
Blizzard recently announced that Overwatch has seen more than 30 million players since launch last May.
