Overwatch is one of the most iconic games of recent years, and of course, its sequel is not leaving anyone indifferent. There is a lot of expectation on the game, with the possibility of seeing crossover play in it, or the rumored change of games to 5vs5. Today, Aaron Keller, who has taken over the project after Jeff Kaplan’s departure from the project, tells GameSpot what the plans are for Overwatch 2’s game modes.
Keller says that while Blizzard is concentrating a lot of effort on the PvE game modes -Player vs Environment-, it wants to make sure it offers a great competitive experience in its multiplayer mode, such as the PVP modes. Keller adds in the interview that “… the other side of the game is just as important, if not more important, and that’s the PvP side of the game. We have 60 million players who love that side of the game and are attached to that side of the game.
We know that, in the future, we have to make the next best version of a team shooter game. So for me, this PvE side of Overwatch 2 does exist, but I’m very focused on the PvP side of the game and I want to make it as compelling as possible.
There is no official release date for Overwatch 2 yet, and because its development is progressing very slowly, it is highly unlikely that it will arrive anytime soon. The game is being developed for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch. Nothing has been announced concerning the PS5 or Xbox Series X / S, but it will probably make it to the next generation of launch.
