According to Metro, the beta wouldn’t just be for OWL players, but he soon made it clear that he didn’t want to reveal more information than he should, noting how he wanted to sign a contract with Blizzard as a creator.

As always, take this info with a grain of salt. But it’s important to note that Metro leaked plenty of accurate Overwatch 2 information in the past, including before the game was even officially announced.
