There are a number of rumours pointing to the announcement of Overwatch 2 at BlizzCon 2019 and while we are still a few weeks away from the event, you should take them with a grain of salt for now. The latest comes from Overwatch streamer and leaker Metro that claims the game will be revealed during the BlizzCon 2019 opening ceremony and showcase a cinematic trailer of Winston, Tracer, and Mei.
The source, who accurately leaked Overwatch hero announcements in the past claims the game will be the big announcement alongside Diablo 4 which was already leaked through a digital artbook. Overwatch 2 will feature a PvP and PvE experience according to the leak and Blizzard will move everything from the current game over to the sequel.
Overwatch 2 is very much real and will be announced at Blizzcon after the short cinematic.

Overwatch 2 will feature a new levelling system that will affect each hero differently and change how you play with them too. For example, Tracer’s Pulse Bomb will stick to nearby enemies instead of just one once you upgrade it.
If the rumours are true, then we can expect to see an Overwatch sequel that ties into the original game and carries over your ranking, skins and other unlocks. However, Blizzard could wipe all this too, forcing players to start again from the bottom. We will have to what the plan is in regards to player ranking.
BlizzCon 2019 will take place on 1-2 November with the opening ceremony kicking off before the festivities begin. If the rumours are true, Blizzard will announce Diablo 4, Overwatch 2 and even a Diablo 2 remaster during the show.
We will keep you updated on the announcements as we get closer to BlizzCon 2019. We will also be giving away Virtual Tickets to the show so make sure you stay tuned for more.
