Is Blizzard preparing to pivot to PvE in Overwatch? It looks like this will happen, at least in part, with Overwatch 2. Rumors are flying fast and furious about the successor to the team-based shooter, which may be a completely new title or a revamped version of the original.
ESPN’s Rod Breslau claims that it has procured a document ahead of this week’s BlizzCon about the big announcement: “Hero talents and in-game items are coming to Overwatch 2 PvE, and one of the missions will be a four-player story experience set in Rio de Janeiro, as opposed to the 6v6 gameplay in the original Overwatch.”
BlizzCon attendees should be able to get their hands on the game this weekend. The report also said that Overwatch 2 is going to feature a brand-new mode called “Push” that will take place on a Toronto map.
