Overwatch 2 will replace the first installment as soon as it is released

From the publication ofOverwatch 2, the saga will experience drastic changes. Indeed, if you are attached to the first episode, know that the latter will absolutely no longer be relevant when its replacement arrives in early access, on October 4th..

That’s what was announced by game director Aaron Keller, as part of a Reddit topic aimed at answering questions about the FPS. Thus, to the message of a user asking if despite the term “early access” the two episodes would continue to coexist, here is the answer given:

We use the designation Early Access to indicate that this is only the beginning of many new things coming to the game. We are launching with new heroes, maps and features, but there will be even more of these items that will be added seasonally – every 9 weeks. We recently released a roadmap detailing some of this content, with a new character arriving in Seasons 1 and 2, as well as a new map in Season 2. On top of all that, bigger chunks of the game that have always been integral to the vision of Overwatch 2 will be added to the title as live service elements, like the PVE campaign we’ll see next year. When OW2 is released on October 4, it will replace the current Live Service.

Remember that this sequel will be Free-To-Play and, in this context, it will undoubtedly be less painful to be forced to immediately drop the first of the name. However, this adds pressure to Blizzard who will have to return a clean copy because regulars will no longer have a backup solution if ever the experience were to pose a problem in the early stages. Fortunately, the different betas will follow one another before October, which will make it possible to refine the different crucial aspects of the game. In this regard, the next session will begin on June 28 and will allow, among other things, to test the character of Junker Queen.
