Since its announcement back at BlizzCon 2019, Overwatch 2's pre-release marketing has predominantly focussed on its new bits - which is to say its PvE story campaign and co-op modes. PvP's still a major part of the package, of course, and Blizzard will finally be giving the game's competitive multiplayer more of an airing next week.

That's according to Overwatch's new game director Aaron Keller, making his Developer Update video debut

The two-hour livestream, available on YouTube and Twitch, will feature appearances by the Overwatch and Overwatch League teams - including Keller, Overwatch lead designer Geoff Goodman, and associate art director Dion Rogers - and promises play-throughs of some of Overwatch 2's new maps as well as talk of the philosophies driving its PvP changes.

"Just to set expectations," Keller adds, "everything that we'll be showing is under development and still a work in progress".
