During the months of January and February, teams began to set up, Blizzard announced which 36 countries would compete, and the World Cup Trials occurred. Teams for the World Cup will then be announced in March, where they will begin their preparations for the 36-team regional qualifiers in June.

From those regional qualifiers, the top 16 teams will then advance to the World Cup round-robin group stage. After that, the top eight Country and Regional teams will compete in a single elimination bracket to determine the Overwatch World Cup Medalists and World Champion sometime in the Fall of 2023.

Apart from the Fall 2023 expectation, it's uncertain when the Group Stage and Finals of the Overwatch World Cup will take place. Additionally, there's no confirmation of where the tournament will be held. In the past, the international tournament was held during Blizzard's Blizzcon event, 2023's possible Blizzcon might follow suit.
