Most of you have probably heard about the recent review-bombing that Overwatch 2 received lately. Blizzard brought the game over to the Steam store, which resulted in an absolute onslaught of negative reviews. As you can guess, most of those reviews had nothing to do with the quality of the game as it stands, but the cancellation of features promised years back.

Everyone at Blizzard is watching the backlash, and that includes Overwatch 2 director Aaron Keller. Keller took to the official Overwatch blog to share a lengthy response to the matter, noting that he understands people being upset with promised features no longer being in the works. That said, those features have officially been squashed, and things move on. It’s the future where Keller wants fans to shift their focus.

If we can’t turn back the clock, then what can we do? We can keep adding to and improving Overwatch 2. That is how we move forward. This means more maps, heroes, game modes, missions, stories, events, cool cosmetics, and features - an ever-expanding, evolving, and improving game. This is the future of Overwatch. One where we will continually create and innovate on what is making the game great now for the players who are playing now.

Overwatch is such a unique game and world. When our heroes are all working together to complete an objective, there is really nothing else like it. Jump in–there’s more to come!
