Overwatch caught plenty of attention when people checked out the beta to see what the buzz was about – including yours truly. It looks like it’s going to be the same story with Overwatch 2, with one developer from Blizzard saying there will “almost certainly” be a beta for the upcoming PC game.
Blizzard hosted an ‘Ask Me Anything‘ session on Reddit to mark the game’s fifth anniversary. Naturally, many questions were about Overwatch 2, but Blizzard was happy to answer some of those queries. One fan asked if we are getting an Overwatch 2 beta, with technical director John Lafluer answering “almost certainly, yes”. He then joked, “if I knew when, I couldn’t tell you. If I told you, I’d have to kill you”. Lafluer didn’t give away a date, thankfully, so we assume the fan is alright.
Elsewhere, Blizzard also delved into what the planned Overwatch 2 Bastion rework would look like. Lead hero designer Geoff Goodman explains that the team still wants the robot to have colossal damage potential when used right, but the devs also want to make sure that playing him isn’t solely about your skill in aiming.
