Blizzard reported Overwatch 2 at BlizzCon on Friday, promising new maps, different new heroes, a fresh out of the plastic new “core” game mode, and another search for Overwatch’s heroes. A lot of that new substance will likewise be accessible in the first Overwatch, so proprietors of the two games can play together.
Be that as it may, what’s not clear is if the first Overwatch will get another hero at any point in the near future, or if the game will hold enduring at its present list of 31 playable saints for years to come. The most as of late released hero, Sigma, dropped back in August, and it seems like the first game may not get any extra characters until Sojourn and other new saints land nearby Overwatch 2.
Overwatch 2 doesn’t have an authoritatively declared release date. “I don’t know. I have no idea,” Kaplan said at BlizzCon when discussing the sequel’s release timing. “We don’t have a date in mind.”
The first Overwatch will keep on getting new content updates, Kaplan said. Blizzard will turn out new beauty care products, obviously, just as its standard record of regular occasions. The yearly Archives occasion will at present run in 2020, however it won’t include another story-driven crucial. Kaplan didn’t utter a word about more saints for Overwatch, which for the most part includes around three every year.
Other new highlights will go to the first Overwatch, Kaplan stated, including the capacity to mess around while hanging tight for a job line opening. Truth be told, there’s even another deathmatch mode coming to Overwatch that is intended to be played while hanging tight for another match. There are “lots of cool updates coming to the original game,” Kaplan said, but “bear with us while we focus on Overwatch 2.”
The Overwatch group, Kaplan stated, is going to “go dark” after BlizzCon, apparently as it identifies with news about Overwatch 2.
At BlizzCon, They talked with Overwatch creation executive Julia Humphreys about the fate of the first Overwatch, however she wouldn’t offer points of interest on Blizzard’s arrangements for new heroes. “We’re going to continue to support the live service of Overwatch,” Humphreys said. “We have a really vibrant and engaged community. We want to keep them really engaged in the game, but we don’t have anything specific to say about what the support will look like.”
Humphreys and associate art chief Arnold Tsang said on different occasions during a meeting that Overwatch 2 is still right off the bat being developed. What’s more, Blizzard frequently avoids reporting discharge dates or discharge windows — Diablo 4 doesn’t have a date either — until near a game’s launch. That could mean a long sit tight for some fresh recruits in the Overwatch universe.
