In a turn of event, Blizzard axed Overwatch 2’s requiremnt.

“We have made the decision to remove phone number requirements for a majority of existing Overwatch players,” the Overwatch team said in a post on Blizzard’s forums. “Any Overwatch player with a connected account, which includes all players who have played since June 9, 2021, will not have to provide a phone number to play.”
