A new source has claimed that Overwatch 2 will definitely be at BlizzCon 2019, with the focus being on a new PvE mode.
By this time next week Blizzard will likely have announced both Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2, as more details appear online to strengthen the case for both reveals.
Following earlier rumours, the smoking gun for Overwatch 2 is a BlizzCon 2019 demo guide acquired by ESPN which talks about a four-player story experience set in Rio de Janerio.
According to the guide, ‘Much of the focus will be on story and narrative elements, Overwatch will see its first new mode since the game was released in beta in 2015, with ‘Push’ set to be unveiled alongside Assault, Control, Escort, Hybrid. Push will be set on a new map based in Toronto’.
Supposedly both the unnamed PvE mission and the new Push mode will be playable at BlizzCon 2019, which starts on Friday, 1 November.
The guide also talks about more specific details, such as hero talents and in-game items, plus 2/2/2 role lock and role queue from launch.
As you’d expect, there’ll also be new maps and and heroes. Although exactly how many new characters isn’t hinted at.
However, it’s still unclear as to how much of a break this will be from the last game and at the moment it sounds like most of the base features of the current version will be carried through and added to, rather than being a clean break from the first game.
Which make sense given its ongoing success.
Meanwhile, a separate leak about Diablo 4 also seems to confirm the game’s reveal is imminent and therefore also a shoe-in for BlizzCon.
