Blizzard Is Offering A Free BattleTag Name Change For Two Weeks Only

After announcing McCree's new name on the Overwatch roster, Blizzard has opened free BattleTag name changes for players, which works across all Blizzard titles.

All accounts have one free name change on them already, and this limited-time change will only work on those accounts that have already used up their free change, and it will not stack on top of those who have not used the free yet.

If you are interested in changing your name, it is important to remember that you may risk losing the numbers that accompany your name, which may include losing 4-digit numbers if your account was created a while ago.

Players can take advantage of this free name change until November 5th, 2021.

Overwatch's Cowboy Jesse McCree had plans to have his name changed after his namesake was let go from the company in August following the ongoing Lawsuit against Activision Blizzard.

Cole Cassidy is the new name for the Cowboy and the change will go live in Overwatch on October 26th.
