Let's face it; there were more significant announcements that Blizzard wanted to focus on.
Even if you aren't a fan of the series, I highly recommend watching the cinematic at the top of this post.
Here's everything that Blizzard announced during its press conference, including Diablo 4, Overwatch 2, Hearthstone updates, and a new World of Warcraft expansion. All of the heroes in Overwatch 2 will be customizable in the game's new PvE mode.
Wondering what a Overwatch sequel means to players of the existing game? During the Overwatch 2 cinematic trailer, we caught a glimpse of two new heroes: the previously spotted Echo and the newly revealed Sojourn. A new game mode, known as Push, will be debuting in Overwatch 2.
The cooperative content is comprised of Story Missions and Hero Missions, both of which aim to flesh out Overwatch 2's narrative and provide some additional context to the world and its many characters. Victory goes to the team that manages to push the robot furthest into enemy territory, so it nearly sounds like a big game of tug-of-war. Kaplan had previously said she would be joining the roster, but they wanted to "build her up" first.
According to Blizzard, more than 50 million players around the globe have jumped into the original Overwatch universe to date.
While that may not be the greatest news for those looking to return to Sanctuary, Diablo 4 is looking to become the biggest entry yet, and Blizzard was willing to share a bit more about how they plan to make that come true.
There will be new maps, and while viable as a standalone game, Overwatch 2 will incorporate elements from and be very interconnected with the original Overwatch. Overwatch 2 director Jeff Kaplan made it clear that Blizzard isn't talking about Sojourn during BlizzCon 2019, so it looks like we'll be waiting on more details about her. However, there will be plenty of new and fresh content.
One of the four-player story PvE missions based in Rio de Janeiro will be playable on the BlizzCon floor.
And we know it's kind of their "thing".
