Overwatch 2 has been announced a few days ago at BlizzCon. However, Blizzard didn’t give any information about the release date of the title, and that’s because they simply don’t know when the game will launch.
In an interview with VG247, Jeff Kaplan, Overwatch‘s Game Director, said that they aren’t keeping Overwatch 2 release date secret, they just don’t know it. Kaplan added that Overwatch 2 will launch when it’s ready since the most important thing to Blizzard it’s to deliver a great game to the players.
Then, Kaplan added that, for sure, Overwatch 2 won’t release this year, and that most likely, they’ll talk about the game again next year at BlizzCon 2020.
“I know it’s a lame answer, I’m super sorry, and it’s not like this top-secret thing that the last thing we want to tell players. It’s just that we don’t know.”
“What’s important to us at Blizzard, on all our games, is that the game is awesome and the players are like ‘Yes, this is ready and now’s the time.’ I don’t have a date, It’s not this year, that’s a pretty safe answer.”
“I have a feeling we’ll be talking about Overwatch 2 again next year at BlizzCon. If that helps.”
Blizzard didn’t announce the Overwatch 2 release date but shared some details on the game
It may be too early to know Overwatch 2 release date, as the game is still in heavy development, but at BlizzCon, Blizzard shared some details on it anyway. For instance, Overwatch 2 will offer a much richer PvE experience, as the game will feature Story missions where the players will be able to know more about the lore of the game. Also, there will be the so-called Hero missions, which will be highly replayable missions separate from the story where, by leveling up, the players will have the chance to modify and improve their heroes’ abilities.
