Blizzard working on Overwatch 2 - Stop Starcraft Shooter

There’s news from Blizzard. A well-informed journalist has found out that they are working on Overwatch 2.

For gamers, this is the most exciting time of the year: E3 is just around the corner. There’s never been so much news about video games as there is now. Not much is expected from Blizzard during this time because since Blizzcon has established itself, the developer announces his new releases right at the in-house fair. Nevertheless, some news from the development studio in Irvine will be spilling over the horizon, right into the lap of resourceful journalists.

Jason Schreier, the writer for Kotaku, is said to have found out in talks with Blizzard employees that a new Starcraft game had recently been pulled the plug. This should come as a first-person shooter on the market, similar to the Battlefield series.

Nobody was released in the course of the production stop. The employees were redistributed to other projects. One of them is Diablo 4, which was already teased on the last Blizzcon. But the second game in development will be very interesting for the eSports scene: Overwatch 2 – of course, the name isn’t final yet.

News at Blizzcon?

Of course, there are no details yet, because the existence of the game has not yet been communicated to the public. However, Blizzard employees are said to have confirmed to Schreier that they are working on it. And the journalist has always asserted himself as a man with very secure sources in recent years.

Now, of course, the question arises as to why Blizzard is sitting on a successor to the successful team shooter? The first part is just three years old now, and the cobwebs aren’t visible yet. Publishing a sequel is very unusual, especially for eSports-focused titles. In addition, the release would also involve some changes for the athletes, as well as the production of the Overwatch League.

But the sequel would also reveal some chances; thus one should focus in Irvine with Overwatch 2 increasingly even on PvE content. Also, the developers could now already think more about the eSports aspect in advance, which has established itself as the driving force of the game.

But we won’t get the first official information about the project until winter when the Blizzcon takes place in Anaheim from November 1st to 3rd.
