Blizzard released Overwatch back in May of 2016 to critical acclaim from fans and reviewers alike. It has kept a consistent player base over the years due to constant new updates including Maps, Characters, and Events. Players enjoyed the game for what it was but many wondered when Blizzard would expand on it with more content like PvE and when they might make an inevitable sequel to the first-person shooter.

Those questions may have just been answered by a Blizzcon source. An article by ESPN shows Blizzard is getting ready to announce Overwatch 2 with new features including PvE:

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, according to the document. Blizzard did not respond to a request for comment.

While much of the focus will be on story and narrative elements, Overwatch will see its first new mode since the game was released in beta in 2015, with “Push” set to be unveiled alongside Assault, Control, Escort, Hybrid. Push will be set on a new map based in “Toronto,” according to the document.

Since Overwatch’s release, many in the competitive Overwatch community, including professional Overwatch League players, have voiced frustrations for some of Overwatch’s less popular game modes, such as Assault, and have been requesting a new variant on which to play. The Overwatch development team has made significant efforts to appease concerns from the Overwatch community, including implementing 2/2/2 role lock and role queue into the game.

With the controversy surrounding Blizzard as of late and all the game leaks coming out, Blizzcon this year will very interesting, to say the least.
