Eagle-eyed observers spot Overwatch 2 patch on Battle.net


By Aron Gerencser February 6, 2022

For a game as highly anticipated as Overwatch 2, audiences have heard very little about the game outside of the public playtest last September.

But, it appears that this Overwatch drought is about to end soon.

Eagle-eyed fans noticed something interesting on Blizzard's game launcher, Battle.net, that could hint at a beta test.

Overwatch's version build number recently went from 1.68 to 2.0 on Thursday, February 3.

Unfortunately, this is the extent of the information available about the new developer build for Overwatch.

Because the build is encrypted, data miners haven't been able to crack the launcher to see potential content.

Also more telling is the new build pushed to Battle.net alongside the February 3 update.

If it's any consolation, March or April isn't too far off. We'll know by then if the leaks about Overwatch 2 are true or not.
