Some time ago, “Overwatch” was revealed by the well-known whistleblower METRO that the sequel of “Overwatch”, “Overwatch 2″, may not be released next year. Recently, he said that there are reasons for delaying the release. First of all, ” The new heroes in “Overwatch 2” have been completed, and their single-player campaign map and pve have also been announced. So it is certain that the big framework of “Overwatch 2” has entered the final stage.
However, the official obviously underestimated the difficulty of adjusting the hero balance in the game, because before the official announced that the game will change the original 6V6 to 5v5, which leads to a lot of changes in the balance of the game to adapt to the new environment. First of all, the most direct thing is Xiaomei. The main creative staff revealed before that Xiaomei’s attack will not freeze the enemy, but will be changed to slow down.
It takes a lot of time to test the balance of a character alone, and Hanzo, Widowmaker, and Doomfist all need to be completely reset. Other heroes also have large and small revisions or adjustments, and the workload of the game will be more. Terrible . But at present, it seems that the official has not made a substantive answer to these rumors, which means that it is still possible to bring substantive content to players next year.
