Will Overwatch 2 Be On PS5, Xbox Series X|S, And Switch?

Overwatch 2 is releasing on Xbox One, PS4, PC, and Nintendo Switch, but will it arrive on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S too?


Blizzard's upcoming Overwatch 2 hasn't been confirmed for release on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S. On the other hand, the game is coming to Nintendo Switch. The competitive multiplayer shooter will be arriving on the hybrid handheld-console alongside versions of the game on PS4, Xbox One, and PC (specifically Battle.net). Though, it remains unclear if the Switch version will launch at the same time as those versions.

Details about Overwatch 2 have been sparse ever since its Blizzcon 2019 debut. So it may be that we'll soon get confirmation that it's arriving on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S at Blizzconline 2021--an event that's set to unveil a ton of new information about Overwatch 2 and Blizzard's other upcoming games. In general, no release date has been announced for Overwatch 2, but we do know that it won't be coming until at least 2022.

Now Playing: Overwatch 2 - Official “Zero Hour” Announcement Cinematic

In Overwatch 2, you'll have access to both PvP and PvE content. Overwatch veterans will recognize what you're able to do in PvP, though there is a new mode, Push, which sees teams try to get a robot to move into their opponent's side of the map. Though, the major change between Overwatch and Overwatch 2 is in the PvE. Overwatch 2 will have PvE Story and Hero modes.

Lastly, to ensure no one gets left behind, Overwatch 1 players will be able to play in competitive PvP with Overwatch 2 players, and your accomplishments and loot collections will carry forward.
