Although much information had already been leaked earlier, during the BlizzCon 2019 opening ceremony Blizzard still managed to amaze its fans by announcing Overwatch 2 with a spectacular trailer that pulled the strings of history and prepared us for the events that will come narrated in the new cooperative PvE campaign.
While the launch window continues to represent an absolute mystery – Blizzard prefers not to unbutton – we have discovered that Overwatch 2 will be released on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and even on Nintendo Switch, the platform on which the franchise made its debut very recent. No mention of the next-generation consoles, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett, although the launch on these last ones seems obvious: only the timing remains to be understood.
Overwatch 2 will offer both cooperative PvE content with Story Missions, Hero Missions, and character skill progression, as well as a PvP 6v6 component, shared with the first chapter. All upcoming maps, additional heroes and new modes (including Scorta ) will also be made available to Overwatch players since Blizzard does not want to divide the community. Furthermore, it will be possible to import 2 signs of progress and objects obtained in previous years into Overwatch.
