Just two months ago at BlizzCon 2019, Blizzard unveiled Overwatch 2 as mainly a PvE sequel to the hit game. Though it is half baked, the community is hyped to get their hands on the upcoming game and try out the teased new hero and the story mode. No definite date or year was announced during the game’s reveal, and yet third-party companies can’t stop teasing its release.
Back in November, Jeff Kaplan, Vice President of Blizzard Entertainment and Game director of Overwatch, was bombarded with questions regarding the on-process game sequel. As expected, a query of its release date was brought up where Kaplan said they have “no idea.” He adds then that they are not targetting a specific time yet. “Like I mentioned, Overwatch 2 is still in development, and we have a long way to go before this game is fully ready,” he adds.
Vancouver Titans, Canada’s Overwatch League entry, recently tweeted a fascinating release date for Overwatch 2. It has since been deleted, but the community has already screenshot the infamous tweet. Of course, everyone got excited over the possibility of its release this year. “Overwatch 2 is coming out this year, what is everyone most excited for?” the tweet reads. They further added, “We are excited for all the new game modes.”

This juicy tweet indicates that the sequel will release this year. Though the Titans did not specify what quarter of 2020, it is more than sufficient for the fans to thirst over the tweet. Fans have already speculated that this year is the year of Overwatch 2, but it is still more rewarding to get a little bit of confirmation.
During the reveal, the PvE and the story mode were the only ones confirmed. Recently, Blizzard also added information about a new PvP game mode for its FPS game. The Canadian Overwatch League’s tweet states “all the new game modes,” which the community takes as having more than two systems.
This month as well, the Brazilian PlayStation Twitter account teased the upcoming hero shooter released. In a now-deleted tweet, it states that, in 2020, Overwatch 2 will come to PS4. An excited confirmation, perhaps, that the next chapter is not exclusive to PS5.
All of these could be mistakes by the social media managers, and Overwatch 2 is not coming this year after all. The tweets could mean assumptions, but having two companies affiliated with Blizzard tweeting this year for the multiplayer game is tough to dismiss.
Even though everyone is thrilled to see what a sequel would look like, the player base is not rushing Kaplan or his team to finish it. On Twitter and Reddit, fans are extending their patience and sympathies, and would rather Blizzard take their time to perfect the game.
There’s still a lot of confusion on how the matchmaking is going to work for both games when everything goes live. Kaplan also touched on the cosmetics that the players have already unlocked, but further details are scarce. In the same interview mentioned above, the Director also said that the team would “go dark” during the development stage.
