When Overwatch 2 was announced in 2019, Blizzard called the new story-driven PvE missions one of the biggest features of the sequel, and despite its launch last year, the team shooter only offered PvP competition, while the developer continued to work on the PvE mode. as Hero, which was recently cancelled.
The Blizzard Entertainment team announced a change in its plans for what the upcoming PvE content for Overwatch 2 will look like. During a recent broadcast in which the developer showed new details about the support map for the upcoming period, he revealed that the Hero phase had been canceled, as well as the reworked progression system and the features that would have accompanied it.
