Overwatch Busan Release Date: When Does the Busan South Korea Map Release?

After Blizzard’s huge announcement today, the question on everyone’s minds is the Overwatch Busan South Korea Map release date. We now know that a new map is on the way but is it already out? Will it release later today around the world? These are all good questions to ask.

In this Overwatch Busan South Korea Map release date guide, we are going to go over when exactly you can expect to jump into this new map and what mode you will use it for. Without further ado, let’s go ahead and jump on over to D.Va’s home country of South Korea and see what’s up.

Overwatch Busan South Korea Map Explained

The Overwatch Busan South Korea Map is a brand new Control map that was announced earlier today. It is a map set in D.Va’s home country of South Korea and features three distinct areas. Those areas include a sanctuary, a downtown area, and D.Va’s MEKA base. The map is said to have been heavily influenced by the real life city of Busan.

The Overwatch Busan South Korea Map wasn’t the only thing to get the spotlight today, as a new animated short focusing on D.Va herself is now available for viewing. In addition, we also know when you can check out the map for yourself.

Overwatch Busan South Korea Map Release Date Explained

The Overwatch Busan South Korea Map release date was partially given today by Blizzard. If you play on the PTR server, you can actually check out the new Control map right now. Unfortunately, everyone else will have to wait a bit. A formal release date for all other servers is unknown.

However, we don’t think you will have to wait too long as features in the PTR typically release for everyone within a few weeks so we expect the Overwatch Busan South Korea Map release date to be sometime in September for everyone else.
