Now, after another long silence, Overwatch game director Aaron Keller shared a new video message. This basically apologizes to the players and admits that the team has disappointed the gaming community.
“We would like to thank our players for their continued support. We recognize that we are not communicating well and are not up to date. To be honest, when it comes to delivering Overwatch content. And we’re disappointed, and we’re working on a more continuous update for everything in Overwatch 2. “
“Thank you for your dedication, passion, and patience … I can’t wait for the whole team to get Overwatch 2 in your hands.”
Blizzard President Mike Ybarra also shared a brief message with the Overwatch community. Via social media:
“Thanks to the players who have always pushed our path forward. We have noticed that our content and communication are disappointing. It will change in the future.”
In the same update, Keller explained how the team is changing plans to help the community play the sequel faster. Blizzard begins by “separating” PVP functionality from the PVE system. This will allow us to provide new PVP modes (including the revised 5V5 team format) faster.
This new approach will allow teams to deliver “frequent” PVP content to live games. Overwatch 2 PVP testing begins this week-Closed Test Alpha (including new heroes), limited to Blizzard employees and key partners like Overwatch Pro Players. The first closed PVP beta will also be open to the public in April, with more beta coming later this year.
When Overwatch 2 was first announced in November 2019, Blizzard at the time described how current Overwatch players can access all of the PvP multiplayer content in the sequel.
