With the Overwatch 2 beta kicking off in a few days, fans are pretty curious about the system requirements it will demand. As the sequel has an upgraded engine compared, it’s vital to remember that the upcoming title will require a more powerful rig to run optimally.

Since its release in 2016, Overwatch has not aged all that well, and players were quite frustrated with the game’s current state and how the developers were not doing much in reviving the game.
