As mentioned previously by Blizzard, Overwatch 2 PvP and gameplay changes have been revealed today during the devstream. One of the biggest changes revealed is how Overwatch’s familiar 6v6 team matches are now being changed to 5v5!
This was revealed by Blizzard themselves during the devstream that’s happening now. It seems that players are now limited to having two damage dealers (DPS), two healers, and one tank per team composition, which will greatly alter how clashes play out.
Blizzard mentions that there are tank changes incoming which the studio will go into detail with, though they have commented that matches should feel faster now, choke points less difficult to get through, and will give force players to be more “tactical.”
We’ll have more on Overwatch 2’s PvP within the day, as more news surfaces.
