Blizzard Comments The Possibility Of An Incoming Overwatch 2


During a recent interview with Gamespot, Blizzard has offered a comment about the possibility of an incoming release of Overwatch 2, a sequel to the match appreciated first-person shooter title for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

As it was foreseeable, the studio from Irvine, California doesn’t plan on releasing a new title of the franchise anytime soon, considering how good it is still performing in terms of userbase and monetization.

Blizzard Comments On Possibility Of Overwatch 2

“I think at the core sitting here at the two-year anniversary, we’ve had a wildly successful 6v6 shooter game which has blown us away with how the community has responded to it. We dip our toes into different areas here and there with the Archives event and Junkenstein. But I think our focus is really on keeping the community engaged with the 6v6 shooter that we have on the live service,” Matthew Hawley told Gamespot.

“Running a live service game takes a lot of work and I hope the community knows we have been committed to continually improving the game and creating content. What people might not realise is the team now is significantly bigger than what it was when we shipped the game, and we have put all of that into working on the live game and the new maps, heroes, and events like Anniversary. At least for the time being, [supporting Overwatch] is our focus right now, and we’re excited to work on this game,” Aaron Keller added.

Recently, Blizzard also commented on the opportunity of bringing the game on Nintendo Switch, saying that at this moment there are no plans to added further platforms to the pool of those currently supported.
