Why We’re Seriously Worried About Overwatch 2

Activision Blizzard announced “Overwatch 2” at Blizzcon 2019, and it’s only reached its beta stage now. Understandably, some fans are asking: Why is it taking so long?

“Overwatch 2” is supposed to rework the foundation of the game through its characters, even if it looks really similar to the original in terms of its visuals. Geoff Goodman, the lead designer behind the “Overwatch” sequel, revealed that these reworks were more complicated than we thought in an interview with USA Today. He explains that most of the delays are related to how slow it is to get changes approved because of the money involved. In fact, the whole team was “kind of upset and annoyed” with these delays themselves. 

“Blizzard is not really a studio that is shackled to dates but that doesn’t mean we’re completely free from all concerns of production costs and time,” Goodman said. Either way, it isn’t going to make “Overwatch 2” come any faster.

“Overwatch 2” is currently in development for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. It doesn’t have a release date yet, but many outlets estimate that it’ll release sometime in 2023.
