If something has been criticized for ‘Overwatch’ throughout its journey, it has been its use of loot boxes. The Activision-Blizzard title has been one of the greatest exponents of this monetization system that has received so much criticism over the years. Precisely for this reason it is striking that they are going to stop selling.

so it has release Activision-Blizzard in the announcement of the Overwatch Anniversary Remix Vol.3. In said publication, the company states that “loot boxes will no longer be on sale after the Anniversary Remix Vol. 3 event ends on August 30. However, you will still be able to earn standard loot boxes after the end of the event.” These boxes will open automatically before the release of ‘Overwatch 2’.
