Overwatch 2 Likely Delayed Until 2023, An Insider Claims

There is some bad news for fans waiting for Overwatch 2, as it seems that the shooter title from the Blizzard team will be likely delayed until 2023. And when it comes to a rumor, it’s easy to imagine that Coronavirus and the chaos within the studio are slowing the development of the game.

Overwatch 2 Delayed To 2023?

Even if Activision Blizzard has not released the official information about Overwatch 2, a title officially announced during Blizzcon 2019, persistent rumors continue to follow one after another. This time it is related to the game being delayed until 2022.

According to the latest rumors circulated, Overwatch 2 will be delayed again because of some delays in the development of the game. The rumor started from the Twitter account of Metro, an insider who has always been very close to the American giant and passionate about first-person shooters with MOBA mechanics.

The situation is also complicated by the recent farewell of Jeff Kaplan, the Game Director who has led the development of the game to date. The launch of the title is currently slated for next year on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC.

As if this further delay of the expected sequel initially scheduled for 2021 were not enough, several Overwatch League sponsors are holding back, including Coca-Cola.

Finally, remember that in a few days (more precisely from 25 to 27 August) the Gamescom of Cologne will be held, an event that will probably be attended by Activision Blizzard to announce some juicy news about Overwatch 2.
