Overwatch 2's New Director Outlines Plans For Post-Launch Updates

Elaborating further, Aaron explained: "We have a lot of big plans for what live content will look like for Overwatch 2. I think our value is to put as much time and resources as we can into updating the live game and making it always feel new, fresh, and substantial."

As part of this, he confirms they're planning more regular content updates, going beyond the current scope of seasonal events. As for what that'll include, this is still being determined, and Aaron states that they couldn't "really speak to exactly what will be in there" at this time.

Considering we don't have a solid release date yet, it's unsurprising these details are a bit light, but we'll keep you informed as we learn more.
