Overwatch’s Loot boxes may not have been the first in video game history, but they quickly became one of the most important even though we were already fed up with them in June 2016that was… a month after the game’s release.

Though somewhat novel at the time, they helped pave the way for even worse examples, how Battlefront IIs disastrous implementationand as profitable as they were for publishers, they were unpopular with fans (and with governments and regulators). who accuse them of encouraging children to play) so many series—including over watch themselves – have begun to move away from them.

That’s correct, surveillance 2 will not use loot boxes, choosing to do so a more direct way to buy stuff:

There will be no loot boxes in Overwatch 2. Instead, the modernized live service gives our players the power to create their own experience. Players can purchase the items they want directly through the Battle Pass and a brand new and constantly updated in-game shop. Our team creates and delivers seasonal content every nine weeks to ensure there’s always something new and exciting for everyone.

And with the sequel coming out soon (currently slated for an October release), that means the end is near Overwatch 1 loot boxes. Blizzard announced earlier today that players will no longer be able to purchase them after August 30, The news comes bundled with a request for users to buy some loot boxes one last time:

Earn and buy Anniversary Loot Boxes throughout the event! Each loot box has a chance to contain items from past anniversary and seasonal events; However, don’t wait too long to snag the skins you’ve been eyeing over the last year –Loot boxes will no longer be available for sale after the end of Anniversary Remix Vol. 3 event on 30.08. However, you can still earn Standard Loot Boxes after the event ends.

So there is still something to earn, just not to buy. Interestingly, Blizzard adds that All loot boxes that players sit on “will be automatically opened before launch surveillance 2“.

RIP, loot boxes. You won’t be missed.
