At the time of writing this, Blizzcon 2019 has not happened so everything Blizzard-related is all speculation. On Thursday we will rundown all the Blizzcon announcements.

Last week pre-Blizzcon, the internet was filled with leaks of various titles that they would be announcing. One of those leaks came in the form of “Overwatch 2,” a sequel to the beloved hero-based shooter.

According to ESPN, Blizzard Entertainment was preparing for an “Overwatch 2” announcement. If that is in the form of a fully-fledged sequel or a game overhaul is unknown.

“Overwatch 2” will apparently feature a new logo, new modes, maps, heroes and PvE modes. A 22nd Overwatch hero may also be named.

By the time this is published this may no longer be just a rumor, so be prepared.

‘Death Stranding’ PC

The hotly anticipated strand game from visionary Hideo Kojima, “Death Stranding,” will be coming to PC after all. Originally believed to be a PlayStation 4 exclusive it no longer will be.
