I cannot stress enough that Overwatch 2 isn’t ‘Overwatch 2’

When Blizzard announced Overwatch 2 in 2019, my eyes squinted and my head tilted a few degrees to the right. We’re in the age of service games—a time when “old” games get updated for years after release and challenge the need for sequels at all. Overwatch was among the first to kick off the trend in 2016, and now there’s going to be another one? How do you sequelize a game that isn’t supposed to end?

Almost three years later, Overwatch 2’s whole deal hasn’t gotten any clearer. Blizzard has done a bad job of explaining what its next shooter is, and it’s already having a big effect on its first PvP beta.
