PlayStation Brazil Reportedly Leaks Overwatch 2 Release Date

A tweet from the official PlayStation Brazil Twitter account may have just leaked a potential release date for Overwatch 2.

Game developer Blizzard announced Overwatch 2 at its BlizzCon 2019 event, unveiling the sequel to the 2016 multiplier game for the first time. Upon announcing the game, Blizzard left one important detail; the game’s release date.

A recent tweet from the official PlayStation Brazil Twitter account, however, has suggested that the game may be launching this year. A screenshot of the tweet captured from Voxel stated that “2020 will be the year Overwatch 2 comes to PS4”.

The tweet also included a link to a PlayStation Blog interview from last November with Overwatch 2 assistant director Aaron Keller. Unfortunately, the tweet has now been deleted suggesting that it was made accidentally.

News of the tweet has divided fans with many theorising that it was deleted because it revealed the game was due to drop this year while other fans have insisted that the tweet was simply a mistake and does not confirm the game’s launch date.

What Has Blizzard Announced?

Although Blizzard didn’t reveal the game’s launch date, it firm did state that it would be coming to the PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Blizzard also insisted that the game was in “early development”.

An official description of the game has been released and reads: “In Overwatch 2, players will take on the roles of the world’s heroes in cooperative missions that challenge them to team up, power up, and stand together against the globe.

“Players will also battle each other in the next evolution of competitive Overwatch play, which carries forward existing players’ accomplishments and loot collections and features the current complete Overwatch roster, a new generation of heroes, new internationally recognisable maps that widen the scope of the word, a new Push map type, and more.”

According to Blizzard, the brand new game will see Overwatch 2’s heroes team up to “defend the world from the omnic forces of Null Sector” while uncovering “the motives behind the robotic armies’ attacks, and come face-to-face with rising new threats around the globe.”

The game’s co-operative story missions will include pickups that modify the player’s playstyle. There are also Hero Missions which are separate from the story but allows players to level-up their heroes and unlock customisation options.

Meanwhile, Overwatch 2’s website and panel reveal shared new maps coming with the upcoming game including Monte Carlo, Rio De Janeiro, Toronto, and Gothenberg. A fifth city featuring a giant ring in the sky was also shown but has remained a mystery to fans.

Until Blizzard officially confirms Overwatch 2’s release date and unveils more information about the game, the tweet should only be considered a rumour. With E3 and other gaming events on the horizon, we may be seeing more information about the game very soon.
