Overwatch 2 Release Date, System Requirements | PS5 Exclusive?

The new game Overwatch 2 is still in development but soon there will be some exciting news. Overwatch 2 Release date is not officially announced yet but will be expecting it from the officials soon. Also, will be hearing something about the game from the officials in February 2021.


These game modes have their own unique strategy to win but it isn’t at its peak as it was before. Overwatch 2 might also be collaborating with Overwatch as one game after development for a better experience for players. It might seem confusing but to summarise it; Overwatch will still be in PVP mode while Overwatch 2 is all about PvE story missions.

Players that enjoy OW don’t need to worry about not getting updates anymore. Rumours are from research as Blizzard is looking for more developers on Overwatch development. There are also rumours of adding content like new agents and multiplayer modes on Overwatch 1 but it should be after released on Overwatch 2. Let’s move into the story and the details of OW 2

Overwatch 2 Story

Overwatch has been a fun game since the game’s release in 2016. This is overwhelmed by players resulting in sponsorship hosting many competitions after the release. This was great and addicting but over years there are games released that are better than Overwatch that bring the game to downfall. Blizzard must have noticed that it is hard to bring the game back to life since there are lots of fps games that exist in their current state.


Fortunately, Blizzard notices that it might have potential on another series since Overwatch’s fans are interested in the character’s history. This is when Blizzard decides to create another series of Overwatch called Overwatch 2 that specifies a PVE battle to make the game alive.

This is not clear that this will be the sequel of the first part. But for sure this is not going to be the new PVP from Blizzard Entertainment.

Overwatch 2 Release Date

Overwatch 2 Release Date is not confirmed till now. It was introduced on Blizzcon 2019 during late November. Blizzard said that it is only in early development and they aren’t sure when it will be released. “I don’t know; I have no idea,” game director Jeff Kaplan said itself.

They are not interested in releasing the game anytime soon as they wanted the game to be fun and playable. This will mean that it won’t be finished in the year 2020. But as per the experts, this will be announced by the end of the year 2020 or at the starting of the year 2021.

Also, there will be an official announcement from the developer of this game is coming in February 2021. Many people are taking this as the announcement of the Release date of Overwatch 2, but still, it’s not clear what will be an announcement in this upcoming event.

There are also rumours of the game will be releasing in 2020 as there are tweets from PlayStation’s official Brazil account that tweeted the game will be coming to PS4 in 2020. There are reports from Dexerto that players have to wait for more until next year Blizzcon 2021.

Also, we are getting some news about the Blizzard Launch Event for OW second part but there is no official invitation till now.

Overwatch 2: PlayStation 5 Exclusive Game?

Overwatch 2 on PS5 is still a rumour today. There are lots of posts regarding it in PS5 with Diablo 4 but during Blizzcon 2019 they never announced once about it. They are sourced from Pushsquare where they leak it will be in PS5. I think it is best to not believe in any of the news as the best it to wait for new trailer or gameplay demo during previews on future conventions.

Is overwatch 2 out for PS4?

As we know the game is in development so there’s no doubt of saying no for the heading. Overwatch 2 PS4 version will be there in the market for sure once the game will be released.
