Hope you're patient!
The launch of Season 6 in Overwatch 2 is going to bring with it a round of story missions, which is something fans have been waiting to see for quite some time. Hopefully those same fans find plenty to enjoy with that release, as it’ll be quite some time until the next round of story content arrives.
Overwatch 2 executive producer Jared Neuss recently popped in on a Twitch stream with Emongg, and he talked about what’s in the works for Overwatch 2. The upcoming Season 6 story missions were a bit topic of discussion, which is where Neuss revealed that the wait between story mission drops will be of considerable length.
“Don’t expect the next round [of story missions] in the next season and the season after that, or anything like that. It is very much like trying to find that balance between getting [story missions] in front of players quickly because we love story stuff, and giving ourselves enough time to make changes or add features.
To be fair, there’s a bunch of stuff that we want to do next year, or that are already in development for next year, that will fill the gaps that people will have in between. We’re trying to make it so that it doesn’t feel like ‘and then there’s nothing’ for a long extended period of time. It’s more like ‘there’s this cool thing!’ and ‘there’s this other narrative thing’, ‘there’s this other narrative thing’ - we keep telling interesting stories and moving that all forward.”
