Blizzard's Overwatch director, Jeff Kaplan sat down with PC Gamer to talk about the coming title and throughout they discussed the release date that was obviously lacking from the trailer. According to Kaplan, even he doesn't know when Overwatch 2 will release, again, yes, that right - the director of Overwatch 2 doesn't know when it will release.

This isn't a bad thing though, as Kaplan explains that the full focus is not on meeting a specified release date, but instead making sure the sequel is great. Here is Kaplan's full quote, "I don't know. I have no idea. Like, just let us make it great, that's what we care about more than anything. We don't have a date in mind." Kaplan also says that after BlizzCon 2019 the Overwatch team will most likely "go dark" to delve into the game.

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
