Overwatch 2 Will Carry Over All Progress And Cosmetics From First Game
During the opening ceremony for this year’s BlizzCon, Blizzard Entertainment dropped all of the news that fans have been waiting for, including what had already been leaked prior to the event. Included in this was the official reveal for Overwatch 2, which will be handling things a bit differently than a typical sequel.
Following the announcement, director Jeff Kaplan confirmed that Overwatch 2 and Overwatch will be a shared experience, meaning that both games will share the same player pool for PvP and both new maps and heroes will come to each title. In addition to this, everything that players have earned (skins, icons, progression, etc.) in Overwatch will carry over to the upcoming sequel. Needless to say, that is a big plus for those who have earned quite a bit in the first title.
That said, this means that Overwatch 2 will have a few things that players of the first game won’t have access to unless they purchase the sequel. This includes all of the PvE content (hero missions, story missions) as well as the graphical upgrades and redesigns of the heroes. Unfortunately, there is no telling when Overwatch 2 will arrive, but when it does, it is safe to say that no players will be left behind. That is, of course, unless they want the PvE goodies.
