Overwatch 2 will release PvP and PvE modes separately, the first PvP beta in April

Blizzard is changing its release predictions for Monitor 2 radically. Instead of launching PvP and PvE shooter together, the studio will separate the group to bring Overwatch 2 PvP to players as soon as possible.

in the news Update – The first episode in a series that is reconnecting with fans – Blizzard has announced that Overwatch 2 PvP has begun closed alpha testing, with a beta date set for the end of April.

The closed alpha version is only available to Blizzard employees, Overwatch League professionals, and a few Insiders. On the other hand, the April PvP beta will be playable by PC gamers of all backgrounds. It will be a closed beta, but larger groups of testers for PvP and to provide feedback to developers will be welcomed.

During the beta, the various developments of Overwatch 2 will be testable. This includes the new Sojourn Champion, Push Game Mode, 5v5 Multiplayer, revamping of existing champions as well as 4 new maps.

You can already sign up for Overwatch 2 Beta PvP 1 at https://playoverwatch.com/fr-fr/. Other players (and hopefully platforms) will have new opportunities to test PvP in future beta stages.

Overwatch 2 is the sequel to the popular shooter game that was released in 2016. What is planned for Overwatch 2 is very complicated since Blizzard announced major multiplayer changes that will affect both Overwatch 1 and 2. The new story mode in PvE is an exclusive for the wing.

This sequel was revealed at BlizzCon 2019, but according to a survey conducted byIGNHowever, the announcement was premature, with internal sources stating that Overwatch 2 is still years in development. The news of the game being split into two separate releases shows that for the company, a full release will take a long time.

It remains to be seen what the release date will be for PvP alone, but it’s a strategy that’s becoming more mainstream, as we’ve seen with Halo Infinite. However, I’m not sure we’ll see Overwatch 2 land in 2022.
