This past weekend saw the reveal of Overwatch 2. While this came as a surprise for some I was somewhat skeptical as there had been a few rumors of its pending announcement appearing on Twitter. With the rumors circulating and BlizzCon fast approaching I promised myself to not believe or get excited about any information if I came across it.
Luckily I somewhat forgot about BlizzCon and the rumors and was honestly surprised when I saw a text from my boyfriend while I was at work telling me about Overwatch 2 was happening and that the cinematic they played first was amazing.
Now, I always knew there would be an Overwatch 2 at some point but as to when or what I would like to see I was never really sure. However, with what was revealed at BlizzCon I am excited and intrigued to see how the features mentioned will be like once the next installment is released.
I was blown away by the opening cinematic and even felt a tiny bit emotional during parts of it. It really was the perfect way to kick off the announcement of Overwatch 2.
As for what we know so far about Overwatch 2, I feel that there is a good mixture of content coming. Story Mode and Hero Missions, Hero talents and of course new Heroes too. New game modes including Push and a new Deathmatch mode as well as plenty of new locations to explore. I’m glad that progress and cosmetics from Overwatch will move over to the new game as well as those playing the first Overwatch will be able to experience the new maps and hopefully one or two more features.
Although there is no confirmed release date as of yet I’m looking forward to following the development of Overwatch 2 and seeing how it unfolds.
