Members of the Overwatch development team live-streamed Overwatch 2 on May 20, giving fans a glimpse at what's to come.

Hero developments, new PvP, and competitive game modes are in the works for Overwatch 2. Geoff Goodman, lead hero designer of Overwatch 2 talks about a new game mode development in progress. "Developing a new mode, it has taken into account how competitive it will be, it was brought up earlier based on the role set we want to make sure it doesn't have any ties to the situation" Geoff Goodman comments on the broadcast.

Geoff Goodman, lead hero designer, did not want to reveal too much information on the new game mode that will replace 2CP. Jeff Kaplan announced 2CP was going to be replaced during BlizzConline, leaving the current team to fill in the gap of game modes. Goodman sounded confident that this secret game mode will be easy to play in its competitive nature, "We had so many matches that came down to two or three meters this is such a fun, just feels good losing, that was a great battle" Dion Rogers, associate art director comments during the broadcast.

All of the participants of the livestream expressed their excitement for the secret game mode without revealing too much. Fans will have to wait a little longer to find out more details of the mysterious new game mode.
