overwatch 2 it’s a little confusing. As Morgan said last week after spending some time on the first beta, it’s not really “Overwatch 2” in the sense that it’s it’s not really a sequel but more like an expansion of the original Overwatch. It’s a state of affairs that many fans expecting a new full game aren’t too happy about.
Despite this, Blizzard said today that it is “humbled and inspired by the amount of interest and enthusiasm everyone has shown for Overwatch 2” and announced that the game’s next public presentation will take place on June 16.
“Overwatch as a world, as a universe, is deeply personal to the team; something we put our time, creative energies and passion into,” said Game Director Aaron Keller. he said. “It can be scary to put something that means so much to you for other people to see. Especially when you know you’re not done and you’re asking people for real and valid criticism of what you’ve done.
“But the reason we do this is important – to make a better game, and it’s our players and our community that make that possible. Tests like this are a vital part of the Overwatch improvement process. We can’t wait to take everything we’ve learned. with the beta and applied it to the game, and we’re so excited to get it back in front of you.”

There’s no indication in the blog post what exactly the June 16 stream will focus on, but Blizzard said on Twitter that it will “share our plan for the coming months, including the upcoming PvP beta.” Overwatch 2 doesn’t currently have a release date, but we expect it to appear sometime in 2023 – although the decision to “decouple” the PvP and PvE parts could result in an earlier release.
