Overwatch 2 could be released sooner than we had thought. The official PlayStation Brazil Twitter account said the game would launch in 2020; the tweet has since been deleted, which could indicate one of two things: it was a mistake; it wasn't meant to be publicized yet.
Here's a screen capture of the tweet, by the way.
Truth to be told, when Blizzard announced the game at BlizzCon 2019 the developers said Overwatch 2 was 'at least a year out'. This pushed many to believe it'd come in 2021, but it could also mean a late November 2020 release date as a launch title on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
Blizzard is attempting to do a different kind of sequel with Overwatch 2. The main addition will be the highly anticipated PvE mode, while the PvP will be seamlessly integrated with the first Overwatch ensuring a single shared player pool.
NEW MAP TYPE - PUSH
In Push, a new, symmetrical map type that will launch with Overwatch 2, teams battle to take control of a robot that begins in a central location, then push it toward the enemy base. Either team may take control of the robot at any time. The team that pushes the robot furthest onto the enemy side wins the game.
A Bigger World: Take the battle to new, iconic international locations, from the colorful streets of Rio de Janeiro to the scenic splendor of Gothenburg.
New Faces: Overwatch 2 will add new heroes to the roster, shaking up competitive play and creating opportunities for bold new strategies.
