Is Overwatch Coming to PlayStation 5? With the release of the PlayStation 5, many are wondering what games will be released with it.

Blizzard hasn't announced next-gen plans for Overwatch, but the game is getting a sequel, Overwatch 2, that will support both cross-play and cross-progression with Overwatch within system families. That's good except for the fact that Blizzard hasn't confirmed whether Overwatch 2 is releasing on PS5, either. It's all a confusing situation in the mix of it all and is not completely confirmed on the terms of future plans.

Overwatch 2 will be a completely separate game that players will have to buy, even if they already own Overwatch. The new PVE campaign will be exclusive to the sequel itself meaning you will only have to pay if you are particularly interested in PVE content.

Between the two games, Overwatch 2 will most likely be on the next-gen system at the least. There is always hope, though, as Overwatch is a popular game, and it could be available through a backward compatibility system. On the other hand, Blizzard has not announced any plans to add cross-play or cross-progression support to Overwatch to and from Overwatch 2.
