When Overwatch debuted, they made a huge showing of it with an impressive cinematic trailer, where it attempted to provide some backstory on the world of Overwatch and the characters. Over time, as more characters were added to the game, Blizzard has attempted to give each of them a backstory through animated shorts and comics.
But the problem with Overwatch is that the story could never be truly fleshed out due to the fact that it is a competitive multiplayer game. However, but that is something Blizzard could be hoping to fix. A report from ESPN says that they have obtained training documents that suggest that with Overwatch 2, Blizzard will be placing a greater emphasis on the story. This might please players.
There may be a potential PvE experience, where more of the story can be explored. Blizzard will not be neglecting the multiplayer aspect, which is pretty much the core of the game. The report claims that there could be a new multiplayer mode called Push though.
It is unclear what the new mode will be like so we’ll just have to wait until this weekend for the details, where Blizzard has been rumored to announce the game at BlizzCon 2019. See you there.
