Overwatch 2 allows you to share your stats, achievements, and items across platforms. If you connect your accounts, you can also link them. This ensures that your game content is transferred to your accounts.

But be careful: You can only transfer your content once. If you link an account for the second time, you cannot take over the content with it.

Linking the content is also possible before the release of Overwatch 2. Your progress will carry over to Overwatch at release .
