Overwatch 2 will replace the existing game at launch

As previously understood, Overwatch 2 will replace the current game at launch. In essence, current Overwatch owners will download a patch and the game will become Overwatch 2, with all the changes associated with multiplayer. For example, the game will switch to a 5v5 format and introduce various balance alterations. The promised PvE campaign mode is scheduled to release in 2023.

The clarification came via the Reddit AMA. In a post by Overwatch 2 game director Aaron Keller, he stated that the game’s release on October 4 represents the start of early access. He added: “We’re using the term Early Access to indicate that this is just the beginning of a lot of new things coming to the game.” The plan to replace the original Overwatch also fits in with the new free-to-play model. The biggest content updates will arrive seasonally, every nine weeks, according to the roadmap Blizzard recently released. Season 1 will feature Sojourn and Junker Queen, as well as a new map. You can find more details on the game’s release in GameSpot’s guide to everything we know about Overwatch 2 and our interview with Aaron Keller.

Any news about Overwatch 2 occurs in the context of allegations of sexual harassment and abuse, as well as unionization efforts, at developer and publisher Activision Blizzard. Microsoft recently agreed to recognize a union after acquiring Activision Blizzard. In the meantime, however, shareholders have voted to keep CEO Bobby Kotick on the board. Despite the demand from many employees that he resign, it seems that he will stay until 2023.
