When Blizzard announced Overwatch 2 at BlizzCon 2019, it didn't accompany the revealed with a release date or even a release window. However, it did confirm the game was coming to PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC, suggesting it was releasing sooner rather than later. In other words, many suspected it would hit sometime in 2020, and it looks this suspicion was correct. More specifically, the official PlayStation Brazil Twitter account recently tweeted out about the game, noting that the Blizzard title would release this year. Of course, the tweet has since been deleted, but the Internet keeps a receipt of everything.
Now, it's possible this was a mistake. They do happen after all. In other words, maybe the person running the account thought the game was announced for 2020. Or maybe this is another example of a Twitter account letting the cat out of the bag. Unfortunately, for now, we can't know which is the case.
Of course, the other question is when in 2020 will it hit. If it's sometime this spring or summer or early fall then it will likely only be for the aforementioned consoles, at least at launch. However, if it's mid to late fall or early winter, then there's a good chance it will also launch on PS5 and Xbox Series X as well.
