We could see the release of a new Blizzard game in the coming year: Overwatch 2. According to rumors, a release is supposedly planned for February 2021, coinciding with the next BlizzCon.
Apparently the next Overwatch League season will be postponed to April 2021. Probably because of a planned release of Overwatch 2 in February 2021. Of course, this has not yet been officially confirmed. However, it would make perfect sense. Because the new season could already be played with Overwatch 2. Alternatively, it is conceivable that the beta of the new shooter will start in February.

Overwatch 2 will bring the fan-anticipated PvE mode with it. You will experience stories that bring you closer to the world and characters of Overwatch. The story missions are designed for four players who work cooperatively. You have to face various threats and so penetrate deeper into the history of the game world.
The multiplayer mode, on the other hand, should be seamlessly integrated into Overwatch 1, which is why it makes sense to postpone the next OWL season until Overwatch 2 is out.
Incidentally, it is not necessary for pure multiplayer players to buy Overwatch 2. Owners of the first part can interact with those who play part 2.
Overwatch 2 is slated for PC, Xbox One and PS4. A release for Xbox Series X and PS5 also seems logical. Since Overwatch 1 was released for the Nintendo Switch, Part 2 is also coming to Nintendo's console. It remains to be seen whether the rumors surrounding a release of the shooter for BlizzCon in February 2021 will be confirmed.
