Players say goodbye to Overwatch

See you on the other side.

Players have been taking to social media to say their goodbyes to Overwatch.

After six years of being one of the most popular multiplayer shooters, Overwatch has been retired ahead of Overwatch 2's launch tomorrow.

The official Overwatch Twitter account invited players to share their memories and fan creations with the hashtag #SeeYouOnTheOtherSide to say their farewells, and plenty of fans have been getting involved online.

On Twitter, artists Hikari Toriumi and PetiteCreme shared the fanart they've made to celebrate Overwatch.

Master Ian Gamer had a slightly different approach, and made a bittersweet tribute "to every fellow tank player" they've played with in Overwatch.

On the game's subreddit, many fans shared their favourite memories of playing the game.

Others shared clips and shots of them in-game celebrating the game's final day together with the other players in their lobbies.

Redditor ZenUntil5v5 is known on the Overwatch subreddit for their daily Zenyatta drawings, which began in March. Their day 216 drawing depicts Zenyatta reading a goodbye message à la M.A.S.H.

Finally, this stunning painting by user cbollaz recreates that very recognisable Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion artwork with Mercy, D.Va and Genji.
