Overwatch 2 Release Date, System Requirements | PS5 Exclusive?

Overwatch 2 is still in development but is still a thing to be excited about. Overwatch 2 Release date is not officially announced yet but will be expecting it from the officials soon. Overwatch 1 is all about the PVP with only some game mode.


These game modes have their own unique strategy to win but the game 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.

Overwatch 2 Story

Overwatch has been a fun game since the game’s release in 2016. The game is overwhelmed by players resulting in sponsorship hosting many competitions after the game release. The game 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 the game 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.

Overwatch 2 Release Date

Overwatch 2 Release Date is not confirmed till now. Overwatch 2 was introduced on Blizzcon 2019 during late November. Blizzard said that the game 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.

Overwatch 2 on PS5 is still a rumour still 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
