With Overwatch 2, the hugely successful team shooter from Blizzard will soon have a successor that comes up with more PvE and some other new features. The developers from California had not yet spoken about a possible release date. However, this still seems to be in the current year 2020.
In addition to the unveiling of Diablo 4 and the next WoW expansion Shadowlands, the announcement of Overwatch 2 was one of the big highlights of the past BlizzCon 2019. Instead of just feeding the team shooter with new heroes and cards, he gets a second part , which is more like an extension. Not only the graphics are revised a little to make the Shooter to look more modern and better, but also a large PvE part is implemented – including co-op missions. The important thing is that players from part 1 and part two can play together and all new heroes and cards always appear for both parts. So if you only want to play PvP, you can theoretically do without the second part.

Overwatch 2: what's next? Summary of the BlizzCon panel
Since the development of Overwatch 2 is still in its early stages, the developers did not speak at BlizzCon or later about a possible release date for the team shooter. However, this now appears to have been inadvertently announced by the Brazilian Playstation side for the current year. In a tweet one welcomes Overwatch 2 for 2020 on Playstation 4. The one seen belowe Tweet was taken offline a short time later, which indicates that this information should not yet be published.
It is of course also possible that the tweet was taken offline, because it is simply incorrect information and some social media employee was a little too hasty or simply misunderstood information. Nevertheless, a release still appears relatively realistic in 2020.
