OW 2 is not showing up in launcher

Overwatch 2 is not showing up in “Installed” section, though Battle.net launcher detects it when I press “Scan for Games”. It’s also not present in “All games”.

When I go to Shop → Overwatch → Overwatch 2 and press “Play For Free” it just takes me to “Games” and nothing happens.

The game is accessible only via .exe file in \Overwatch_retail_ but this way I have to enter my login & password every time, which is bothering.

Restarting, reinstalling Battle.net and deleting cache folder (using this guide: https://eu.battle.net/support/en/article/34721) did not help at all.

May it be caused by that fact that i play from Russia? Because Blizzard stopped selling games in my country back in march. However, OW2 is free and should be accessible…

Is there any way I can fix my problem? Thank you in advance.


I’ve got the same problem. Nothing helps…


Blizzard has truly broken overwatch!
Its time to quit this game.
