Blizzard have pretty much confirmed that the next Overwatch game is in development, but very little is known about the game. Here are 5 things we want to see in Overwacth 2.

Late last year I heard a rumour that Overwatch 2 was in development and that it would mainly focus on a story campaign. Of course I took the rumour with a grain of salt but I decided to reach out to Blizzard for a comment. Unfortunately they could neither confirm nor deny the rumours – but shortly after, more and more news started to leaking almost proving that Blizzard were, in fact, working on a sequel.

An industry insider allegedly told Kotaku that Blizzard are working on Overwatch 2 and that they will reveal it at Blizzcon 2019.
