Overwatch 2 Fans Discover Potential Clue Regarding When PvE Will Launch

Overwatch 2 players have discovered a potential clue as to when the long-awaited PvE story campaign will kick off. Overwatch 2’s upcoming PvE content is expected to highlight several heroes and expand the world of the competitive shooter with additional lore.

When Overwatch 2 debuted in November 2019, Blizzard confirmed that the new game would feature a story campaign starring the franchise’s iconic heroes. Players can also team up to complete objectives on PvP maps in Heroic Missions, which Blizzard describes as “deeply replayable” content. However, during the early access period leading up to Overwatch 2’s release, there was no new PvE content to be found. Blizzard will clarify that the new PvE content will arrive sometime in 2023, but no exact release date has been announced. While waiting for Blizzard to share more information, Overwatch 2 aficionados may have found out when the new PvE content will be released.

Twitter user FLX_nf and other Overwatch 2 fans have discovered that the first playable branch of Season 6 is being tested at Blizzard, which could indicate that PvE content is coming this August. The testing branch indicated that a new version had been detected, and users speculated that early testing heralds the imminent arrival of PvE with new heroes in Overwatch 2. Some fans in the community think that PvE might arrive at the start of Season 6, but that possibility still exists due to various betas and mid-season updates.

If Blizzard sticks to its original timeline, Overwatch 2 Season 5 will begin on June 13, with Season 6 arriving sometime in August 2023. While investigating the beta branch for information related to PvE content, Overwatch 2 players reportedly found a dated build scheduled for September 12th. Players believe September 12th could be the release date for the Season 6 mid-season update, narrowing the release window for Overwatch 2 PvE content to August and September.

The Overwatch 2 beta branch could be a promising sign that PvE content is coming soon. However, any developments regarding Blizzard’s beta may not be finalized yet, so the potential release date for the beta update could change. Fans may want to wait until Blizzard speaks publicly to its playerbase about the future of Overwatch 2 seasons.

Blizzard will unveil its new Overwatch 2 roadmap in mid-May, so the wait for news on PvE content may be coming to an end soon. In the meantime, players can enjoy new Overwatch 2 Season 4 content like the Weaver support hero and the upcoming Starwatch event.

Overwatch 2 is out now on PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
