Earlier today during the BlizzCon 2019 Opening Ceremony, Blizzard officially announced Overwatch 2 with an incredible cinematic trailer, the revealing of its first ever gameplay, the announcement of new heroes, and much more. That said, what Blizzard didn't reveal was a release date or even a release window. Further, it didn't mention what platforms the game is in development for. However, one of these things have since changed. Unfortunately, there's still no word of when the title will release, but we do know it's coming to PS4, Xbox One, PC, and even Nintendo Switch. At the moment fo publishing, there's been no word of PS5 or Xbox Scarlett versions, but you'd assume these are in the pipeline as well.
Of course, none of these platforms are very surprising, bar the Nintendo Switch, which the first game just came to last month. What's interesting here is that Blizzard is confident it can get the game to run on the under-powered console. At one point, Blizzard suggested it was going to be a daunting task to get the first game to run on the Nintendo console. So to hear the second title will run on it, presumably right at launch, is a bit surprising.
Answer the call.
