Overwatch Season 6 is just on the horizon.The fifth season of Overwatch has been quite exciting with loads of DLC in the shape of new content was there but it is drawing to a close now. What to expect from Overwatch Season 6 is a huge question among the community and also when the current (5th) season will end.
Even though Season 5 is drawing to a close, there is still plenty of time for players to get done with their placement matches and get an acceptable SR before the season is over. It is expected that Season 5 will continue up till late August and Season 6 will hit sometime in late August but could very well be expected in early September too. Seasons usually last three months (although the first season didn’t even make it to two full months) so this one is expected to have the same duration.
You can expect Season 6 to kick off anytime during August 28th-September 3rd. The different CP rewards according to your SR are listed below for Season 6:
- SR 1-1499 (Bronze): 100 CP
- SR 1500-1999 (Silver): 200 CP
- SR 2000-2499 (Gold): 400 CP
- SR 2500-2999 (Platinum): 800 CP
- SR 3000-3499 (Diamond): 1200 CP
- SR 3500-3999 (Master): 2000 CP
- SR 4000-5000 (Grandmaster): 3000 CP
There will be the same 10 placement matches although they shouldn’t affect your ranking too much. Rankings will be carried over from the past-season and the placements should only change it slightly according to how they’re played. The biggest point for deciding your SR would be Competitive Play matches and whether if you win or lose them.
There is a rumored new spray coming for season 6 which will be awarded to players who retain their position in the top 500 for a certain time period. So you better keep your eyes peeled for that one
The new season 6 will surely kick off soon and be sure to stay tuned for everything new on Overwatch!
