  • Blizzard Entertainment said that Overwatch 2 isn’t coming in 2021, but it did reveal a bunch of new details at its BlizzCon Online event today.
  • Jeff Kaplan, game director of Overwatch 2 — the shooter sequel to Overwatch — said in a presentation with leaders on the team that the game will have a wider range of environments for battles through the world.
  • If you’re in a place that echoes a lot, the guns will have “convolution reverb,” meaning the acoustics of echoes from the environment will be blended in with the gun sounds.
