If you’ve played Overwatch long enough, you may want to switch to another game. Or you might even want to delete your Overwatch account so you won’t be tempted to play it again.
In case you really want to delete your Overwatch account – I’ll tell you how.
How to remove your Overwatch account
Your Overwatch account isn’t independent, it’s linked to your Activision Blizzard account, so the only way to delete your Overwatch account is to delete your Activision Blizzard account.
However, keep in mind that you will lose not only Overwatch, but also other games linked to your account, so I wouldn’t recommend doing that. But if you do want to, here’s what you should do:
- Go to the Activision Blizzard website (you can use this link)
- Log in to your account
- Fill in the request to deactivate your account
- You may be asked to provide your ID confirming that it’s really you
It usually takes about 30 days to deactivate your account. After this time, you will no longer be able to log in to your Activision Blizzard account and gain access to your other games. So you may need other ways, which I’ll tell you about below.
