Overwatch 2 welcomes players tomorrow

Overwatch is really dead. Blizzard officially shut down the servers for the first-person shooter at noon on October 3. Although the servers will only be down for about 24 hours, when it restarts, Overwatch will shut down and was completely replaced by Overwatch 2.

Blizzard’s hero shooter gained a huge following after its release in 2016. The title even won several awards at the Game of the Year event. Since then, Overwatch has been the inspiration for numerous comic book adaptations, fan-generated fan fiction (mostly NSFW), and awesome cosplay. To keep the Overwatch IP relevant, Blizzard has maintained a steady stream of content, but over the years it has dwindled. For now, the Overwatch adventure has come to an end. This ending paved the way for Overwatch 2 in an attempt to achieve the same success as its predecessor.

However, it is unfortunate that Overwatch 2 has been criticized for some of the changes made. For starters, the only game option available at launch is Open Queue. Other modes, such as role queue, will be unlocked by playing a few matches in open queue. Also, those who haven’t played Overwatch will have to work hard to unlock the Season 1 heroes.

Overwatch 2 will land at 2:00 a.m. local time on October 5.
