We won’t just be seeing Diablo 4 at BlizzCon Online in early 2021, Blizzard also has confirmed plans to show off progress on Overwatch 2. Overwatch lead, Jeff Kaplan, discussed the plans in an announcement post this week.
In the Overwatch Development Update video, Kaplan explains that we will be seeing more of Overwatch 2 at Blizzcon in February. This follows a lengthy period of silence on the project, as the developers have not said much since initially announcing the sequel in 2019.
“Can’t wait to talk to you more about Overwatch 2, can’t wait to show you more with Overwatch 2. We know it’s been too long, we know we’ve been quiet, and we still have a ways to go, just to manage expectations.”
Kaplan warns to manage expectations, so it doesn’t sound like we’ll be getting a huge reveal with a release date or open beta announcement. However, we will be seeing a bit more of the game than we did last year. Perhaps this time around, Blizzard will also be a bit clearer on its messaging, as the initial announcement for Overwatch 2 and how it is positioned next to Overwatch 1 caused a lot of confusion.
KitGuru Says: Do many of you still play Overwatch? Are you looking forward to the sequel at all?
