About Overwatch 2

Blizzard Entertainment is currently developing Overwatch 2, a first-person shooter that serves as the sequel to their 2016 hero shooter, Overwatch. The game aims to have a shared environment for player-versus-player (PvP) modes with its predecessor while also introducing new cooperative modes. One significant update in PvP is the reduction of team sizes from six to five, resulting in the need for several characters to be reworked.

On October 4, 2022, Overwatch 2 was made available for early access as a free-to-play game on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
