Overwatch 2: Release Date, Trailer, Gameplay, Heroes & Everything else you need to know!

Overwatch 2 is set to be Blizzard’s next Triple-A title.

With a large fan base still existent on Overwatch, it will be interesting to see the fan base switch to this new game and how acceptant the enthusiasts really are.

Overwatch 2 has been tailored to a more story-based experience, with much more in-depth lore present within the game.

For hardcore players, this will be very exciting, but for
those playing for the gameplay, this may feel slightly more terrestrial.

PLAY YOUR WAY - Change your abilities and loadouts to suit your playstyle!


Don’t let this be a concern as Blizzard are likely to include all the heroes from the first game as well as some possible new additions.

This also gives them a great chance to balance these heroes
and change up the current meta.
