Some players believe that Overwatch 2 could be an update

It is important to say that this is not the first time that members of the community have expressed something similar. There were those who compared what will happen with Overwatch 2 with the annual releases of Call of Duty and even hinted that new installments in the war fighting series have more arguments to be considered an entirely new title each year.

Overwatch 2 still just looks like DLC, or a big update – not a “new” game.— 🇿🇦 Andrew Davis 🇿🇦 (@ThrownIntoSol) June 16, 2022
Since around the game’s announcement is more telling than anything else. Will I try the game out? I mean it’s free so why not, maybe I’ll be proven wrong, but as it stands I’m not excited for Overwatch 1.5.— Goofy (Semi Hiatus) (@Bloatygoof) June 16, 2022
This game still just looks like Overwatch 1. Not enough has changed to really make me excited for it. Only two characters have gotten real reworks, while everyone else plays identical to how they did in 1, the “new gamemode” is a more annoying payload push—— Goofy (Semi Hiatus) (@Bloatygoof) June 16, 2022
People gonna get fooled by Overwatch 2 again lmao— Corvo🐻🐰🌕Ryu “Loves Bunnies” sen (@ScatteredRose) June 16, 2022
Why is it still called Overwatch 2? It’s literally just an update to the original game. Calling it overwatch 2 is just confusing and silly.— aZombieDictator (@aZombieDictator) June 16, 2022
I’m still trying to grasp what exactly is in Overwatch 2 that justifies it being a sequel instead of an update— Mork Gutchewer (@gutchewer) June 16, 2022
Why make an overwatch 2 when there is hardly any changes?—William Kemeny (@kemeny_william) June 16, 2022
loved the new overwatch 2 updates! blizzard added more ways to monetize the game than actual content!!! 3 years of development time for this! 😂😂😂😂😂— peepo (@Kirelexx) June 16, 2022
Some people have questioned whether “Overwatch 2” is truly a sequel. Blizzard says “across the board” updates to the nuts and bolts holding Overwatch together will allow the team to ship faster updates.https://t.co/GuvgxEBkmV— Launcher (@LauncherWP) June 16, 2022
Overwatch 2 isn’t really though. Just a waste of time.— Neockwon (@N3OCK1) June 16, 2022
although I did enjoy overwatch, I am afraid they will pull the same shit for overwatch 2 where they will just abandon it and create overwatch patch 1.3 and call it “overwatch 3″— 🔞フォーワード🔞 (@four4ward) June 16, 2022
Overwatch 2 doesn’t feel like a real game. — Grizz (@GrizzOn13th) June 16, 2022
Overwatch 2 is more of the same, should it be an update?
Naturally, Overwatch 2 might seem at first glance to be more of the same, mainly because (as any series has its genre) it is the same hero shooter franchise, whose gameplay has been carried over from its launch and will be carried over into the sequel. However, you should know that the title will include several important new features that may not be appreciated at first glance, but rather at the gameplay level. Perhaps many have the perception that Overwatch 2 does not change much because the title is based more on gameplay and not so much on the narrative or campaign, which for many series serves as a reason to launch a new game. However, it has already been announced that Overwatch 2 will have PvE (player versus environment) modes, just like the original, so it is very likely that the story will expand through limited missions, as happened with the Archives in the installment. of 2015. Additionally, Overwatch 2 will continue to grow and will have more heroes, more maps, new modes and a lot of new skins, as well as a renewed PvP (player versus player) mode, as the confrontations will stop being 6 against 6 to adopt the 5 versus 5 model. Also, we could already see redesigns of some characters not only aesthetically, but also in terms of gameplay. Anyway, we will have to wait for the game’s release to see if Blizzard Entertainment manages to change the minds of some skeptical players and achieve the success that the original achieved at its launch. And you, are you excited for Overwatch 2? Do you consider it a full-fledged sequel? Tell us in the comments. Overwatch 2 is in development for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC. You can find more news related to him if you visit this page.
