Overwatch 2 Part 2

Announced at Blizzcon 2019, overwatch 2 will not only feature new co-op modes, new maps, and heroes with customization and leveling but will also help build out the story behind the game’s beloved heroes. To get players ready for the upcoming sequel to the original, here’s a roundup of what we know about Overwatch 2 so far and A epic story mode.

A NEW HERO

A tease shown at Blizzcon revealed Sojourn as a new hero coming to Overwatch 2. So far, we know Sojourn is from Canada and was featured in an Overwatch seasonal event called Storm Rising as a captain. Fans also noticed her in Ana’s origin story as one of the founding members of Overwatch and she was spotted again in a quick flash as a hero on a computer Winston uses to put out a call for help in an animated short called Recall.

OVERWATCH STORY 2

Overwatch 2 will reportedly expand the universe through an all-new story-focused PvE mode. This mode aims to bring more of the world and lore that Overwatch has to offer to players, which has been mostly experienced in bits and pieces through cinematic trailers, comics, and occasionally cutscenes via seasonal events.

While details about Overwatch 2’s story are unclear, it seems to revolve around the ongoing fight between Overwatch and Null Sector!

 

NETFLIX SHOW

According to new reports, Netflix is possibly working on developing two animated TV shows for the popular game franchises, overwatch and Diablo. Blizzard Studios President Nick van Dyk, currently states on his twitter profile: “Executive producer of Diablo, a TV adaptation of Blizzard’s IP, rendered in an anime style. The show is currently in pre-production for distribution worldwide through Netflix.”

As for the first-person shooter game Overwatch, Nick states on his profile that he “with [his] creative partner, developed and sold an animated series based [on] Blizzard’s Overwatch franchise.” With his close ties to Netflix already, it wouldn’t be too far of a stretch to think the animated series would be bought by the streaming platform.
