Let's get this out of the way early: Overwatch 2 does not have a release date.
Overwatch 2 beta is sure to be the hottest ticket on the internet the second it goes live.
Overwatch 2 -- or whatever Blizzard wants to call it -- is on its way according to a solid report from Kotaku.
If the rumor about Overwatch 2 is true, then there's a lot of ideas that could move over from the current game.
Okay, I love Overwatch -- I love the setting, the characters, the lore, and the hints at a deeper, broader story just percolating beneath the surface.
We have a rumor that there's an Overwatch 2 in the works at Blizzard, although it sounds less like as direct sequel and more like a different kind of game entirely -- according to the rumors, people inside Blizzard have compared it to Left 4 Dead. Based on what I know bout L4D, that makes me wonder if Overwatch 2 is going to be a prequel, since in the Overwatch setting a good alternative to zombie hordes would be, well, robot hordes.
According to a report by Kotaku, Blizzard is working on another Overwatch game that will focus on PVE play and will be announced at this year's BlizzCon.
As is the case with any rumor, you can't be sure, but Kotaku has posted an article stating that various Blizzard sources have spoken to them off the record about the cancellation of an in-house StarCraft FPS game along the lines of the Battlefield series, in order to focus on both the Overwatch and Diablo franchises, which will be the big focuses of this year's BlizzCon.
