Ow2 Blizzcon 2019 Render Hero Upgrades.original

In 2019, Blizzard announced a sequel to its team-based hero shooter Overwatch for multiple platforms including Xbox.

The focus of the second game is a new story and hero PvE missions. While it has sounded like more of an expansion than a full-blown sequel at times, it seems it's still going to take Blizzard a little longer than fans may have expected.

During Activision Blizzard's latest earnings call, the company confirmed Overwatch 2 would not be launching this year.

One other game confirmed not to be launching in 2021 (that's also confirmed for Xbox platforms) is Diablo IV, although this is admittedly far less surprising.

“Our outlook does not include Diablo IV or Overwatch 2 launching in 2021."

So, there you have it - no Overwatch 2 or Diablo IV in 2021. How do you feel about this? Tell us down below.
