The title will be released on October 4 in early access for all consoles.
Throughout these years, specifically since 2016, it has been possible to see how Overwatch has been growing in its cast of characters, thereby giving rise to Blizzard being able to extend this universe in different ways. However, in the end all the ideas end up running out little by little, leading this to the American company having decided release Overwatch 2 later this year.
In this way, before its launch, little by little it has been possible to see that the different betas that have been launched with the odd wink have allowed more information to be known about what is to come, as well as so that Blizzard knows firsthand that it has to improve and that you should leave as is. However, first of all, it should be noted that It seems that there will be no more betas.
The two public betas of Overwatch 2 have been enough for the team to know which direction to take with the title.
Under this premise, Jon Spector, Overwatch business leader and Blizzard vice president, has spoken about Overwatch 2 and its future, confirming that there will be no more betas. According to what you have commented, the justification for this is given with satisfaction with the results and data obtained in the two betas already launched, this being more than enough for the team behind the video game to know what they have to do in order to have the game ready in october.
It should be noted that this has divided fans, as many are of the opinion that there are still many changes needed to be able to have the game you are looking for. However, it seems that Blizzard’s intention is that the team is not taking too long and dividing the work in early access. Time will tell if this ends up being the best decision, since characters like Mercy are giving people something to talk about.
Otherwise, it only remains to point out that Overwatch 2 will launch in early access on October 4 for PC, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S..
