Blizzard coming right off the heat they got over the China scandal announced Overwatch 2 at BlizzCon 2019 which did help to divert the attention and bring audiences back to the developer and now it seems like Overwatch 2 is going to be released in 2020.
A tweet was sent out by PlayStation’s Brazil Account which clearly stated that Overwatch 2 was going to release in 2020 and linked an interview to the tweet. The tweet was immediately deleted which brings up more theories as to what exactly happened and was it not meant to be sent out today.
You can check out a screengrab of the tweet right below:
As of right now, neither Blizzard or PlayStation has said anything about Overwatch 2 except that it would be a direct sequel to the first game. Overwatch has its huge presence in streaming and the eSports world.
The deletion of this tweet further fuels the speculation that there is a high chance that Blizzard Entertainment wants to keep down for a while and might announce more details about Overwatch 2 in the coming months.
Certainly, it will be incredible to see Overwatch 2 in 2020, the trailer of it did raise some eyebrows and we got to see all of our favorite characters come back to the game.
Overwatch 2 is developed by Blizzard and is available for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
