With all the hype and buzz surrounding Blizzard's newest launch, Overwatch 2, fans are excited to get their hands on it.

However, while console users can easily access the game by buying it online or in store and then just run the game, there is a chance that your PC can have issues.

While PCs offer greater freedom in terms of running how you want them to run, that freedom is a double edged sword. Should your specifications not be up to par, the game will suffer framerate issues, slow loading times, crashes, and other issues that can make the game virtually unplayable.

With the game's launch coming up, especially with the Overwatch 2 PVP Beta coming soon, now is the best time to double check your specs for your computer. So, in order to see whether you need to grab a few new parts or just give in and buy it for a console, here are both the minimum and recommended specifications for Overwatch 2.
