Overwatch 2 is getting some new details, as a developer livestream will highlight the updates coming to the game’s PvP next week. Since BlizzCon, fans have been waiting for news on Overwatch 2, the long-awaited sequel to the game that revolutionized the modern hero shootout. The latest co-op PvE gameplay has gotten a lot of attention in the game’s ads so far, but classic multiplayer is what put Overwatch on the map.
With a cinematic dubbed “Zero Hour,” Overwatch 2 was released in 2019. Since then, players have been attempting to get their minds around the major improvements coming to the game’s sequel. Many are curious how Overwatch 2 will compare to the original, almost exclusively based on PvP.
With an emphasis on cooperative PvE action, many are curious how Overwatch 2 will live up to the original. A two-hour Overwatch 2 livestream is planned for May 20, during which Blizzard will discuss the sequel’s development since it is currently in development and has no release date.
Aaron Keller, Overwatch 2’s new director, revealed the topic of the upcoming live stream next week in a YouTube post. Players will reportedly be able to read more about Overwatch 2, with a particular focus on PvP this time around. The stream will focus on the updates coming to traditional multiplayer in the sequel, but Blizzard may still show off some PvE gameplay and data.
Since former director Jeff Kaplan left Blizzard after 20 years, fans have been wondering about the status of Overwatch 2. To regain fans’ interest, it appears that the developer is able to show off some in-development videos, concentrating on the game’s PvP game modes, maps, and updates after the original. However, it’s difficult to say how much of what’s been seen will remain untouched or unchanged by the time the game is out, which is unlikely to be this year.
On May 20, there will also be famous Overwatch League teams competing, but it is unknown which ones. The San Francisco Shock, as well as other local teams, can tend to demonstrate new Overwatch 2 gameplay.
Fans of the premier hero sniper series will undoubtedly be excited to hear more information about the forthcoming title for the first time in months, as there will be an overview on new maps and the concept behind Overwatch 2’s character updates, among other things.
