Jared Neuss, executive producer on Overwatch 2, has revealed that the game will not be receiving any new PvE story missions for a while, possibly not until 2024 at the earliest.
Speaking on a live stream with Twitch streamer Emongg, Neuss revealed that new PvE story missions won’t be arriving over the course of the next couple of seasons.
Don’t expect the next round [of story missions] in the next season and the season after that, or anything like that. It is very much like trying to find that balance between getting [story missions] in front of players quickly because we love story stuff, and giving ourselves enough time to make changes or add features.
To be fair, there’s a bunch of stuff that we want to do next year, or that are already in development for next year, that will fill the gaps that people will have in between. We’re trying to make it so that it doesn’t feel like ‘and then there’s nothing’ for a long extended period of time. It’s more like ‘there’s this cool thing!’ and ‘there’s this other narrative thing’, ‘there’s this other narrative thing’ – we keep telling interesting stories and moving that all forward.
Overwatch 2 was released in October 2022 for PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One.
