The first cinematic trailer for Overwatch 2 dropped more than two years back from now, and fans had to wait a long time for the game. Recently, Blizzard announced the inception of beta testing for its PvP modes. This comes a long time after the announcement of the earlier confirmed beta, which the developers carried out on Reddit.

Overwatch has taken the hero-shooter genre to new highs, and fans have been asking for a successor for a long time. The news of the game being in development has swirled about ever since the first cinematic trailer was released. With little information available, many fans were skeptical over whether there would be a sequel at all.

However, players' patience has finally bore fruit, and if official information is to be believed, players will be able to experience a new Overwatch quite soon.


Overwatch 2 is planning to hold PVP Beta testing in late April

Earlier in December 2021, the community heard rumors about the game getting a release in 2022. While Blizzard hasn't announced a release date yet, it has announced potential dates on which the beta testing will begin. It has also mentioned how players can sign up as beta testers.
