During the presentation of Overwatch 2 at BlizzCon 2019, Jeff Kaplan was very careful not to miss any information on the game’s launch window. No wonder, then, that many journalists asked him the same question: when will Overwatch 2 be released?
In an interview granted to VG247, the Game Director stated that he has not the slightest idea: “I know this is a disappointing answer. I am really sorry, this is not top-secret information that we absolutely do not want to reveal “We simply don’t know. What matters to us at Blizzard is that all our games are fantastic. “
Some time reference, in any case, Kaplan was able to provide it to us: ” I don’t have a date, but I can safely say that it will not be released in 2019. I have the feeling that we will talk again about Overwatch 2 at BlizzCon next year if this can be d ‘help’. According to his words, Overwatch 2 will not see the light before November 2020, when a new edition of BlizzCon will take place.
The game director then had the opportunity to talk about the number of heroes that will be made available for the launch of the new PvE component, which includes cooperative missions and an unprecedented skill progression system. “In terms of characters, there will be several. However, it won’t be like Overwatch that offered it right away 21, it would be excessive and harmful to the game itself. ” So don’t expect so many heroes to choose from right away. Separate speech for PvP, which will be shared with the first chapter.
