Overwatch 2: What to expect from the sequel – Release Date, Plot, Updates and More!

Overwatch had debuted in the year 2015 and at that time, was a shooter game, but since then, it has evolved dynamically.

The sequel game will take a lot of inspiration from the first game with several new and cool updates for gamers to enjoy and explore.

What’s New In The Sequel?

Overwatch 2 doesn’t destroy the originality from the original Overwatch game as Blizzard didn’t want to change everything from the original game and make the original gamers feel left out with the sequel game.  Even if one doesn’t buy Overwatch 2, one will get a new character update in one’s original gaming experience and would be able to play alongside Overwatch 2 gamers in the PVP multiplayer. The progress, cosmetics, rankings, and other relevant things from Overwatch 1 also carry over to the sequel game.
