Overwatch 2 Teases Exciting Anime Crossover with Cowboy Bebop
Overwatch 2 has recently hinted at an upcoming collaboration with Cowboy Bebop, a renowned anime series from the late 90s, marking the second major anime crossover in the game’s history, set to debut in Season 9: Champions.
In a noteworthy move during Overwatch 2 Season 3, the popular first-person shooter orchestrated its inaugural official external IP crossover with One Punch Man, a beloved superhero parody anime. This collaboration brought Overwatch 2 skins inspired by One Punch Man characters, including Doomfist as Saitama and Kiriko as Tatsumaki, along with accompanying voice lines, Highlight Intros, and an in-game event. Now, Overwatch 2 is poised for its second significant anime partnership.
The Season 9 trailer for Overwatch 2, unveiling new skins, systems, and events, concludes with a tantalizing glimpse of Big Earl’s on the Route 66 map. The scene features a set of legs likely belonging to Cassidy, pausing on a jukebox that activates and plays “Tank!”—the iconic opening theme of Cowboy Bebop. While details about this crossover are scarce, fans can make some educated guesses based on the available information.
The teaser suggests that Cassidy will take center stage, with a probable Spike Spiegel skin. Other main characters from Cowboy Bebop, such as Jet, Faye, and Edward, are likely to receive cosmetic treatments. Fans speculate that Reinhardt, Tracer, and Sombra are strong contenders for these anticipated skins, but the official announcement will reveal which Overwatch 2 characters will receive the Cowboy Bebop makeover.
