Overwatch 2 director says the game "isn't just DLC or an expansion"

More than DLC

Overwatch 2 is doing things quite a bit different from your standard game sequel. All the content that appears in this second game will also be available to those who are playing the first. That has lead some to believe that Overwatch 2 is just glorified DLC, but director Jeff Kaplan wants to change that thinking. He offered up a comment on the matter in an interview with the Washington Post.

“This isn’t just DLC or an expansion. I play a lot of games. I can’t think of a single DLC or expansion of this magnitude.”


I guess it could be similar to Splatoon 2 where the battles were mostly the same, but that still had mostly new content...

That's how I read it based on the Blizzcon info. It's just the same old Overwatch with a playable story and new PvE missions.

It is kinda sad we live in a time where they have to clarify that a sequel with a 2 at the end is not just dlc or an expansion pack.
