Blizzard has "no idea" when Overwatch 2 will be released

Game director Jeff Kaplan says that the team will "go dark" for a while, and we may be talking about it at next year's BlizzCon too.

With Overwatch 2 finally being confirmed at BlizzCon this past week, there were understandably a lot of questions around the sequel, and since Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan was included in a What's Next panel at the event, he was asked about the release date of the project.

"I don't know. I have no idea. Like, just let us make it great, that's what we care about more than anything. We don't have a date in mind," he said, as shared by PC Gamer.

Kaplan also added that the team is likely to "go dark" while they keep their heads down to work on Overwatch 2, although we've already got the chance to play it at BlizzCon, as you can read in our hands-on impressions.

"I know it's a lame answer, I'm super sorry, and it's not like this top-secret thing that the last thing we want to tell players. It's just that we don't know," Kaplan told VG247 when talking about waiting until they're ready for the release date.

"What's important to us at Blizzard, on all our games, is that the game is awesome and the players are like 'Yes, this is ready and now's the time.' I don't have a date, It's not this year, that's a pretty safe answer."

"I have a feeling we'll be talking about Overwatch 2 again next year at BlizzCon. If that helps."

Are you impressed by what we've seen and heard about the project though?
