Overwatch 2 is a long-awaited sequel to Overwatch that has been dead for a long time. The game hasn’t received any major updates and is a nightmare to play due to the lack of a player base. It’s just the same game that you could play three years ago except the fact that you’ll grow old waiting for enough players in the queue. However, if you are an Overwatch fan, you probably got super happy with the fact that Blizzard decided to release a sequel to the game in the form of Overwatch 2. The game was supposed to be a Hail Mary for the Overwatch series, but it might just be the final nail in the coffin.
Overwatch 2 Gameplay
The game has seen several delays and is finally set to release in the first half of 2022. Fans got to see a good bit of gameplay with the exhibition match played on the Overwatch 2 game. However, instead of the overwhelmingly positive response that the developers were expecting, the reactions were somewhat mixed. It pretty much looked like the same Overwatch game that players have been grinding for years.
If you only recently discovered xQc, there’s a good chance you don’t know about the streamer’s past. He was a former Overwatch pro and was a part of the Canadian squad that won the World Cup back in 2017. He was also recognized as the MVP of the tournament. So, if there’s anyone who knows what they’re talking about when it comes to Overwatch, it’s xQc. And, according to him, it’s the same exact game.
It really doesn’t make sense why Blizzard would have gone through so much trouble to announce a brand new game when they really just intended to release a reskinned, rebranded version of the same game. If that’s what you planned all along, why not just release a hyped-up patch to rebuild the player base? But, who knows? Let’s give the company the benefit of the doubt. It’s possible that they manage to come up with some new stuff before launch.
