According to Overwatch insider Metro, it’s very unlikely that Overwatch 2 meets its 2022 release schedule. Metro stated:
I’ve heard from multiple people close to my original source with OW2 that the development is taking longer than expected. From what I can gather a release in 2022 does not seem likely anymore. I hope this is false and I’m proven wrong.
Blizzard have not announced any plans on new characters or maps until Overwatch 2 is eventually released.
