Overwatch and Overwatch 2 will one day merge
After the announcement of Overwatch 2, what the players of the first installment feared most was that Blizzard would forget them. However, that will not be the case, because shortly after the company confirmed that the 2 environments would coexist and the content achieved in the first installment would not be lost. It seems that Blizzard’s commitment is very great with the players who made the title famous, as they recently revealed that the ecosystem of the 2 games will one day be oneself.
Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan confirmed that they will do so with the intention of not segmenting the franchise community, taking into account their competitive section, because they do not want the division to be favorable to anyone.
“There will be a point where customers merge. We believe this is important, especially in a competitive experience. The idea in general is to avoid fragmenting the player base and not giving anyone any competitive advantage. If we are playing in the same competitive community, you better not have a better frame rate per second just because you are in a different version of the game, ”Kaplan explained.
