Blizzard Entertainment Vice President, Jeff Kaplan, has said that Overwatch 2 will be a full-fledged sequel but one that doesn’t disregard the original like sequels to multiplayer games tend to do. We already know that the upcoming title will offer a shared PvP experience with the original but Kaplan pointed out to GamesRadar that Overwatch 2 will come with “full-featured” PvE and new content exclusive to the sequel.

“We’re introducing full-featured PvE that will include a complete ‘story experience’ with a full set of story missions pushing the narrative of Overwatch forward through gameplay for the first time,” Kaplan told GamesRadar. “We’re also working on a highly replayable cooperative feature we call Hero Missions that will be powered by a progression system that will allow each hero to level up and gain new powers.”

PB = PB || {}; PB.gptStandAlone = PB.gptStandAlone || {}; PB.gptAutoRefresh = PB.gptAutoRefresh || {‘gptAds’:[], ‘gptStandAlone’:[]}; admiralCookie = readAdmiralCookie(); googletag.cmd.push(function() { var standAloneSizeMapping = googletag.sizeMapping().addSize([0, 0], []).addSize([750, 0], [[300, 250]]).addSize([980, 0], [[300, 250]]).build(); PB.gptStandAlone[‘ros_300x250_p_slot4_1578852589’] = googletag.defineSlot(‘/4403/cr/playstationlifestyle/ros’, [[300, 250]], ‘ros_300x250_p_slot4_1578852589’) .defineSizeMapping(standAloneSizeMapping) .addService(googletag.pubads()) .setTargeting(‘pos’, ‘P’).setTargeting(‘content_detail’, ‘0’).setTargeting(‘kw’, ‘in-article’).setTargeting(‘coppa’, ‘0’).setTargeting(‘site’, ‘playstationlifestyle’); googletag.enableServices(); googletag.display(‘ros_300x250_p_slot4_1578852589’); if (admiralCookie === null || admiralCookie[‘val’] === ‘false’) { googletag.pubads().refresh([PB.gptStandAlone[‘ros_300x250_p_slot4_1578852589’]]); } });

PB = PB || {}; gptAds = PB.gptAds || {}; var opts = {“asBool”:false,”adUnit”:”\/4403\/cr\/playstationlifestyle\/ros”,”adDiv”:”pb_prebidjs_300x250_a”,”sizeStr”:”[[300, 250]]”,”mapping”:[{“viewport”:”[0, 0]”,”sizes”:”[[300, 250]]”},{“viewport”:”[750, 0]”,”sizes”:”[]”},{“viewport”:”[980, 0]”,”sizes”:”[]”}],”targeting”:{“pos”:”A”,”content_detail”:”0″,”kw”:”in-article-mobile”,”coppa”:”0″,”site”:”playstationlifestyle”},”resize”:false,”autoRefresh”:false}; PB.waitForAS = (opts.asBool) ? true : PB.waitForAS || false; admiralCookie = readAdmiralCookie(); if (admiralCookie === null || admiralCookie[‘val’] === ‘false’) { PB.evGPTBuilder.enqueueAd(opts); }

In a recent issue of EDGE magazine, Kaplan explained Blizzard’s vision for Overwatch, revealing that he sees the IP as a universe rather than a single game.

Our vision for Overwatch has always been to create inspiring heroes, to embrace inclusivity, to reward teamwork, and to inspire our players towards a bright and hopeful future. We’ve always thought of Overwatch as a universe, not just a single game. The original game was the first expression of Overwatch, but we dream of what other forms of media could feature Overwatch.

Overwatch 2 is in development for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. A release date has yet to be announced but rumor has it that it’ll be out sometime this year.
