Forums - Gaming Discussion - Blizzard to announce Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2 at Blizzcon 2019

All companies are on a hard seat today, because none of them want to risk losing China market. The problem of Blizzard was the way they dealt with the situation.

This is rumor, thread title makes it sound like it's confirmed.

Anywho I'm interested in this Blizzcon alright, but not for their lootbox/microtransaction infested games hehe.



Overwatch 2? How are they going to get people to go over from 1 unless it's just like a superficial upgrade?

Diablo 4 will be better if they follow 3's 2.0 style. Weird to think that it will most likely be an entire gen since the last Diablo. Same with Elder Scrolls. Some of the biggest games don't release often. 



Hmm, pie.

OW is way past its prime, a lot of old OW players have already moved on. OW2 from what I read through some rumors will have a single player component.



don't care about overwatch 2, but if diablo 4 has paladin in it, then imma get it.

Wait, what? Diablo 4? If this turns out to be true, then screw that Hong Kong nonesense, I was supporting Blizzard all along.



Diablo 3 was a terrible game. I would go so far as to say it wasn't even a game, it was a glorified spreadsheet with no gameplay whatsoever. I hope they reboot the series with Diablo 4, otherwise I'm not interested.

Overwatch 2 I will keep a very close eye on, best new shooter IP in years IMO.



I hope Overwatch 2 is being designed as a next-gen game, but I doubt it is if they are announcing it now instead of at the next BlizzCon, best we can hope for is a cross-gen, though cross-gen will still hold the graphics back quite alot. I also really hope that Overwatch 2 has a singleplayer campaign, Overwatch fans have been begging for one ever since Overwatch released. They're going to need to do big things with Overwatch 2 like a campaign and removal of lootboxes in favor of direct purchase microtransactions if they want to win back fan support after all of the recent missteps. 



I own ow on pc but never played it more than 1 hour, I got bored to death in that 1 hour. ow2 would be, at least for me, the wrong way to rekindle my interest. they should extend the old game with new maps, mechanics, heroes and crossplay.
