While no details have yet been revealed about the maps that can be played, Blizzard recently shed some light on Junker Queen, on the occasion of theXbox-Bethesda Games Showcase. The 34th character of Overwatch entering the fray will be equipped with a sturdy shotgun and a large two-handed ax for melee attacks, and will be a tank hero.
The announcement of the second beta test of Overwatch 2as well as the game itself that will be released in the fall, precisely the October 4, 2022, comes at a tumultuous time for development study. Over the past year, both Blizzard and parent company Activision have had to contend with several allegations of harassment sexual and discrimination. Additionally, the company is currently in the process of being purchased by Microsoft. Recall that Overwatch 2 will be a free-to-play multiplayer which will include at least 2 new characters: Sojourn and Junker Queen. The game’s paid campaign will arrive at a later date.
