The upcoming season 9 of Overwatch 2 is set to bring some major changes, including a new battle pass, a cosmic horror theme for hero skins, and, surprisingly, a potential crossover with the beloved anime series Cowboy Bebop. The teaser for the new season features a brief glimpse of a familiar sight from Overwatch, followed by the iconic Cowboy Bebop theme song, “Tank!” playing in the background. While Blizzard Entertainment hasn’t officially announced the crossover, the hint is crystal clear, especially considering the precedent for anime crossovers in the game.
If the crossover does come to fruition, it’s likely to bring a range of themed skins and other cosmetics to Overwatch 2, similar to the previous collaboration with One-Punch Man. Fans are already speculating on potential character skins, including a Spike Spiegel skin for Cassidy, a Faye Valentine skin for Tracer, and a Vicious skin for Genji, among others. With the new season set to start on February 13, any potential Cowboy Bebop crossover would likely arrive within two months after the launch of season 9. Overall, the crossover has sparked excitement and anticipation among fans of both Overwatch and Cowboy Bebop for the unique collaboration to come.
