What time does Overwatch go live? (Corrected)

Overwatch launch times for each country

The Overwatch beta is over, and the game won't be released until next week ... but it's not like we're counting down the seconds.

Blizzard has released a detailed guide explaining how to buy the game and make sure you're ready to play the moment it goes live, along with what time you can expect the game to unlock in your region.
