Will Overwatch 2 Beta run on Linux?

Does anyone know how was it during OW1 beta or launch? Would you like to try the beta?

I’ll try to get access. But I would have no idea of how to try to get it working. Could I be banned?

Overwatch 1 worked beautifully on Linux but they haven’t said anything about Linux support. Chances are if you do get banned you can just ask customer support to unban you, as soon as Twitch beta keys drop tomorrow someone will probably try running it on Linux.

AFAIK they went a step above that and whitelisted the particular heuristics that WINE was tripping up in their anti-cheat so that Linux users would stop getting banned after a while. Not sure how effective that was, I personally never got banned though. Short of actually supporting Linux, that’s probably the nicest thing Blizzard has done recently lol.
