Overwatch 2 announcement reportedly coming at BlizzCon

An Overwatch 2 announcement is reportedly coming at next weekend’s Blizzcon, ESPN says.

The sports outlet has cited a source at Blizzard alongside a training document that details the sequel and a new mode called Push, one that takes place on a new map called Toronto. A new four-player PvE story-based mode will also be added to the experience, the report suggests.

Moreover, ESPN’s report suggests that a new Omnic Hero called Echo will be announced during the event; Echo has featured in a trailer called Reunion that was screened at 2018’s BlizzCon. The report also gave us our first look at the sequel’s logo, seen above.

YouTuber Stylosa also claims that player characters will have a progression tree with new skills rather than just 2-4 assigned skills.

 

BlizzCon starts this Friday at the Anaheim Convention Centre in California, USA. We’ll report back as more is known. In the meantime, are you excited for Overwatch 2?
