In an investors call following its financial report on the quarter ending December 31st, Activision Blizzard said that Overwatch 2 and Diablo 4 are not part of its financials for 2021. Blizzard is slated to release some new projects in 2022 (which may not necessarily be either or both of these games). Regardless, it’s going to be a long wait.
Overwatch 2 and Diablo 4 were both announced at BlizzCon 2019 to great fanfare. Neither had received a release date or window – rumors even stated that development was progressing fairly slow on Overwatch 2. It’s been particularly excruciating for fans of the current game with no new heroes launching in almost a year.
As for Diablo 4, Blizzard has been releasing quarterly updates detailing different systems and so on but hasn’t offered up much new gameplay lately. This could change at BlizzConline 2021 which takes place on February 19th to 20th. Overwatch 2 will also be present so perhaps we’ll hear more about its new heroes. Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.
