Blizzard Entertainment have yet to confirm anything about Overwatch 2, but ESPN say they're getting this information from a BlizzCon source, along with a BlizzCon training document which contains details about Overwatch 2. One of the new missions, according to ESPN, will be four-player instead of 6v6, and will take place in Rio de Janeiro. ESPN also indicate that story will play a bigger part of Overwatch 2, but that a new "Push" gameplay mode will also be introduced, and will reportedly be set in Toronto. PvE, meanwhile, will apparently get hero talents. ESPN say that the PvE story and Push gameplay mode can be played by those who attend BlizzCon this weekend. The idea about PvE features in Overwatch has been circling for some time, with ESPN further referring to an earlier Kotaku article, which also hinted at PvE playing a big part in Overwatch's sequel. BlizzCon starts this Friday and runs until Sunday, and so there's not long to wait to find out more about these reports.

I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
