Overwatch beta is now live, if you got the email and the install button in the Battle.net app, congratulations, if you didn’t, don’t sweat it, I’m sure they have more incoming beta invites for the closed beta prepared to be sent soon enough.
But yesterday in a Tweet Blizzard warned users to beware of fake emails, websites or people who claim that they have beta keys for sale. Beta keys don’t even exist at the moment so don’t expect to “get it from somewhere” because you don’t have a chance to enter the Overwatch closed beta through any of those ways.
[BETA] Overwatch beta "keys" do not exist. Please be cautious of any emails, websites, or individuals that claim to offer them!

At the moment the only way to get it is through invitations from Blizzard. As a lot of Blizzard fans are highly expecting this game there are a lot of people who are trying to take advantage and trick you into believing that beta keys exist. Also stop trying to contact customer service because they cannot give you beta keys even if you ask.
However Blizzard said in a different tweet that “Accounts will be flagged from our end & emails will be sent to players who have access to the beta letting them know” and users were chosen based on region, the moment when they signed up, computer hardware specifications but mostly it was a random process.
If you are one of the lucky ones GG, you’ve already had a chance to play Overwatch but not for long because they decided to do an 8 hour maintenance after a couple of hours of its release.
