Blizzard announced for the first time Overwatch 2 at BlizzCon in November 2019 with stunning cinematics that set the stage for the story, while also revealing some of the new game modes and other enhancements fans can expect from the game.
Unfortunately, not much information on Overwatch 2 has come to light since the game’s announcement, leaving fans in the dark when it comes to Blizzard’s popular hero shooter franchise.
Fans await information on Overwatch 2
While Blizzard has been keeping quiet about Overwatch 2 since the reveal trailer, fans are looking forward to a big reveal next month at BlizzCon. BlizzCon 2021 is scheduled to take place February 19-20, and that’s where fans look forward to seeing Overwatch 2 again. Some fans have been optimistic that an Overwatch 2 release date might even be revealed at BlizzCon 2021, but those fans may want to keep their expectations in check.
A proven Overwatch leaker named Metro recently spoke about Overwatch 2 on a Twitch stream. “Heard they’re fucking slow and they’re holding it back,” Metro said in response to a question from his Twitch chat. “From what I hear, it doesn’t sound good at all. It seems like it’s a long way off.” Assuming the Metro information is correct, it seems unlikely that an Overwatch 2 release date will be foreseen for BlizzCon.
As for what fans can expect to see from Overwatch 2 at BlizzCon 2021, Metro suggested they might receive “some” announcements of new heroes on the show, emphasizing that no new heroes will be arriving at the Overwatch base until the launch of OW2. As for the new heroes, the only one officially announced by Blizzard is Sojourn, which was revealed alongside Overwatch 2 at BlizzCon in November 2019.
While Metro has accurately leaked information from Overwatch in the past, they have been wrong about it too, so fans should take this information with a grain of salt. As some may recall, Metro had previously claimed that Overwatch 1 would be scrapped for Overwatch 2, and that the sequel will simply surpass the original game as an update. Blizzard has since rejected those claims, revealing that Overwatch 2 is its own release while sharing PvP with the original game. However, it has also been said that, at some point, Overwatch and Overwatch 2 could merge to become a single product, so perhaps that is what Metro was referring to with those initial claims.
So while Metro’s claim that Overwatch 2 development is slow might be true, fans shouldn’t be too eager until they learn more from Blizzard in an official capacity. Overwatch 2 is still expected to debut at BlizzCon 2021 in February, so anyone curious should be sure to tune in to the show.
