Players Express Dissatisfaction with Overwatch 2’s Handling After Cosmetics Go Missing

Overwatch 2 recently launched its biggest update yet, Season 6 Invasion, but fans are not happy with how the game is being handled. Reports on Reddit have surfaced, with players claiming that their cosmetics earned from previous Battle Passes have gone missing. Some of the missing items include a voice line for Orisa and the Bastion Medal Pose.

The community has been critical of Blizzard Entertainment's management of the game, often accusing the publisher of predatory tactics. However, it is unclear if this removal of cosmetics was an intentional decision or a bug.

Interestingly, some players have found that they still own the missing skins, suggesting that this issue may be a bug in Overwatch 2. Many players have shared their own experiences of missing skins, particularly during the transition from the original Overwatch to its successor.

While some players believe that concerns about missing cosmetics are exaggerated, others think that this is a genuine issue that needs addressing.

Ownership of digital game purchases is a contentious topic, especially when it comes to in-game cosmetics. Players only hold licenses to play the games and their associated purchases. If an online game shuts down, these purchases are lost unless the publisher offers some form of compensation.

One positive aspect is that Blizzard Entertainment allows players to transfer their cosmetics from the original Overwatch to Overwatch 2, including loot boxes. However, the lack of communication from the publisher regarding these missing cosmetics is disappointing. Players have reported similar bugs in the past without any response.

Some players remain hopeful that these missing cosmetics will eventually be restored, especially considering the recent Season 6 Invasion update. Ultimately, it is up to the developers to resolve these issues. Overwatch 2 is available on multiple platforms, including PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch.
