When it comes to hero shooters there are a few that likely come to mind but one of the biggest is arguably Overwatch. The video game is a multiplayer-only focused FPS that puts players into different hero roles all with their unique abilities and attributes. From there is a battle to see who comes out on top. While the game has done very well since its launch back in 2016, it seems that Blizzard Entertainment is looking to bring out a sequel.
Overwatch 2 was announced in 2019 and with it comes an assortment of new content. You’ll still get the FPS multiplayer shooter that you enjoy right now in Overwatch, but there will be new story-related missions, heroes, maps, and game modes. Still, if you wish to stay on Overwatch, it looks like the sequel PvP updates will be brought over onto the original game, but it remains to be seen if this ultimately means that all of the content will be brought over or not.
Furthermore, while details are still a bit scarce, we do know that the existing cosmetics will be carried over to the sequel so you don’t have to worry about losing any skins when the sequel does drop. But that’s the question of the day right now as we don’t know when Overwatch 2 will be launching. We got the unveiling for the title last year but there is no firm launch date or even a launch window of the title quite yet.
If we were to guess, we could potentially see the title launch at some point this year due to all the leaks and rumors on top of this latest tweet from the Vancouver Titans, that claimed the game would be making its way out into the market this year. Since that tweet went out the account had went back and deleted from their account but thanks to Dexerto, the image was captured and shared once again.
Right now, it’s anyone’s guess as to when we’ll see Overwatch 2 finally grace us in the marketplace but its only a matter of time before Blizzard Entertainment makes an announcement about when the game will see a release.
