Overwatch 2 Brings a New Look to the Franchise

Overwatch 2 New Look

Blizzard officially announced Overwatch 2 during the Blizzcon 2019 Opening Ceremony. Alongside new cinematic and gameplay trailers, Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan took the stage to declare a new direction for the game. More information on all the announcements can be found on the official PlayOverwatch website

Among the most significant parts of Kaplan’s remarks was the reveal that Overwatch 2 will feature a new game engine and an updated aesthetic. All heroes will be receiving a new look for the sequel, and seven were debuted on Friday. In general, the changes bring the heroes of Overwatch more fully into its futuristic setting with sleeker, battle-ready armor that reflects the warzone setting for the game’s new PvE content. 

Fans of the original skins have nothing to fear, however. Kaplan also stated that the two games will feature a shared competitive environment and that all cosmetics will transfer to the new game. That means that any hard-earned skins will follow players into the sequel alongside the new looks for every hero. With that in mind, here are the updates for Lucio, Mercy, Reinhardt, Winston, Tracer, Genji and Mei.
