Blizzard’s newest IP, Overwatch, has had its release date leaked.

Rather then getting upset at news giant IGN, Blizzard has posted an official announcement on their YouTube channel.

NeoGAF user Sn4ke_911 posted a screen shot from IGN, which leaked the launch date ahead of the official announcement. The date leaked was May 24th, 2016. A separate advertisement was also on the website leaking the early access start date, which is May 3rd.

The highly demanded open beta will be available from May 5th-9th, and available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Any progress made will not be carrying over to the main game, however.

For anyone playing the open beta, all 21 heroes will be available to test out along with all the maps.

On top of having a video on their YouTube page, Overwatch’s official website has also been updated to reflect the leaked dates.
