Overwatch 2 Update Shared by Blizzard

We haven't heard anything from Blizzard about Overwatch 2 since BlizzCon, at least nothing of note. Unfortunately, Blizzard still doesn't have much to say about the game, but according to today's earnings call from Activision Blizzard, Overwatch 2 passed an important milestone in recent weeks. What this milestone is and why it's important, isn't divulged, but it's noted that more information, and presumably media, will be released in the coming months before the end of the year.

Unfortunately, this is all Activision Blizzard had to say about the new Overwatch game during the earnings call. To an extent, it's a promising update, but without further specifics, it's difficult to be too excited if you're an Overwatch fan. That said, with everything going on involving Blizzard, there's a chance that the quick update was by design. However, for now, this is just speculation.

According to various reports in the past, Overwatch 2 has had considerable development issues, and it's possible it still is, but this milestone update suggests that if there was ever the case, it's no longer the case.

It's worth noting that Blizzard -- more or less -- provided the same update pertaining to Diablo 4, so it's also possible "important milestone" may be a marketing-speak overstatement not worth putting much value into.

Overwatch 2 is in development for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Nintendo Switch. At the moment of publishing, there's been no word of a release date.


"In Overwatch 2, players will take on the roles of the world's heroes in cooperative missions that challenge them to team up, power up, and stand together against an overwhelming outbreak of threats around the globe," reads an official pitch of the game. "Players will also battle each other in the next evolution of competitive Overwatch play, which carries forward existing players' accomplishments and loot collections and features the current complete Overwatch roster, a new generation of heroes, new internationally recognizable maps that widen the scope of the world, a new Push map type, and more."
