It means the heroes, maps and all of the player verse player game modes featured in the second game will be playable in the original Overwatch game.

Right off the heels of announcing Diablo IV, Blizzard reveals Overwatch 2, the sequel to the popular team shooter Overwatch, at BlizzCon 2019. Square off against rivals in PvP modes, and explore the Overwatch universe firsthand in all new, fully cooperative missions that challenge the world's heroes to team up, power up, and take on an overwhelming outbreak of threats around the globe.

With the introduction of the story mode, Overwatch 2 will also have a heavy focus on player vs. enemy content while keeping the same PvP features in competitive modes.

"Sanctuary has been a home to Diablo players for more than 20 years, and it's with our own deep passion for the series and a deep appreciation of the community that we announce Diablo IV today", said J. Allen Brack, president of Blizzard Entertainment.

Coinciding with the announcement, Blizzard unveiled an Overwatch 2 gameplay trailer (embedded above).

And there is also a good chance that other news related to Overwatch will be revealed today as well.

It's also been announced that all 31 heroes ("plus more" says Jeff Kaplan!) will be getting an "upgraded look".

Making Echo Hero 32 and then revealing a release date for Overwatch 2 could make for some kind of crossover event. The sport can even characteristic a brand new map primarily based on Toronto, the primary Canadian metropolis to be featured within the sport.

One game update that has fallen off most people's radar is Diablo Immortal. Let us know your thoughts in the comments!

According to the post, "it takes significant time to meet the Blizzard quality level" that the developer and its fans have come to expect and Blizzard wants to take time to meet the "ambitious goals" it's set for the game. However, there will be plenty of new and fresh content. We see a long abandoned settlement before going much further underground.

"Tune in early for a special BlizzCon pre-show at 10:30 a.m. PDT on Friday, and get ready for the opening ceremony live at 11 a.m. PDT".

While unlocked cosmetics will carry over into the sequel, newness will flow back into the first game too.
