Blizzard had a huge surprise by announcing Overwatch 2 during its opening keynote at BlizzCon 2019, but news quickly broke and was confirmed that Overwatch 2 would also be coming to the Nintendo Switch.

Yeah, Overwatch 2 is also coming to the Nintendo Switch |

It wasn't even that long ago that the original Overwatch hit the Nintendo Switch, but now that Overwatch 2 has been announced -- without a release date, we know it'll hit the PC, Xbox One, PS4, and the Nintendo Switch. No mobile Overwatch 2 for now folks, even with news that Apex Legends will be on new platforms (PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett) as well as mobile in the near future.

Overwatch 2 will feature "significant engine upgrades" that are exclusive to the new game, but there are no details on what exactly we'll see on the Nintendo Switch version of OW2. We might see a very baked-down version of the suped-up engine for Overwatch 2 on the Nintendo Switch, but only time will tell with that.

As news breaks, we'll report it for Overwatch 2 -- including the Nintendo Switch version.

With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
