Blizzard says 'lots of heroes' in the works for Overwatch 2

A lot sounds like a lot

Overwatch 2 is looking to heighten the experience of the original game in every way possible. That certainly means some new heroes on the way. Just how many can we expect? According to a Playstation blog interview with Blizzard's Aaron Keller, multiple heroes are coming our way.

We’ve got lots of heroes in the works currently for Overwatch 2. We can’t get into who they are exactly, or what their gameplay might be like, but they will help round out the world of Overwatch and give us new gameplay mechanics we have not yet seen. Overall, Overwatch 2 will be offering players new gameplay changing ways to play our heroes in Hero Missions. For instance, we like to give the example of Reinhardt’s Talent called “Epicenter” where instead of a cone effect for his Earthshatter ability, it becomes an Earthshatter with a full 360-degree effect around him.

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.”
