Overwatch 2 PvE Mode Officially Canned By Blizzard

Blizzard officially closed the doors on the Overwatch 2 PvE mode that they announced in 2019. Yet they are still saying that a similar PvE will come soon. According to Neuss, the Executive Producer for Overwatch 2, the Blizzard Dev team had made progress, making fun enemies, great hero skills, and the sort. But they were unfortunately not able to implement it in Overwatch 2 and make it into a “Blizzard-quality experience “. For now, Blizzard had decided to take the PvE mode out of their current plans and focus more on the current game, essentially canning the whole plan.

PlayOverwatch released an Overwatch 2 roadmap for the rest of 2023, and it does not have many details, but has sufficient information, as seen below.

Overwatch 2 PvE Mode was Officially Canned By Blizzard

According to the Overwatch 2 director Aaron Keller, there will be something similar to the PvE that will come before in Season 6. There will be an event that will have a different type of Overwatch 2 PvE with single-player Hero Mastery missions and more. He said that it will be the same thing as announced originally, just done differently. It will be called Story Missions, and it will arrive around August, along with season 6.

They are continuing with a PvE mode to show that they are not completely giving up on PvE for Overwatch 2. That means there is still some hope. Nonetheless, the content for the next seasons seems to be jam-packed and our expectations, though wounded, still reside.

Overwatch 2 is available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series S|X, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. For more information on future updates and patch notes, head over to the Official Overwatch 2 Website.
