An Overwatch 2 beta will be arriving soon, updates to Blizzard's Battle.net servers suggest.
Ever since the Overwatch team announced that the next Overwatch League season would take place on an early Overwatch 2 build back in April, fans have been on high alert for any and all Overwatch 2 news.
For the last year or so, Blizzard has been pretty silent when it came to Overwatch 2 announcements, but fans of the game have found some crumbs of news that hint towards a beta announcement.
Overwatch 2 Demo Leaked via Battle Net
Twitter user OverwatchNaeri wrote, "Looks like the Overwatch 2 Beta will be out really soon! 'Overwatch 2.0' and 'Demo 2' has been updated to the Blizzard [Battle Net] developer server."
In a screengrab of the Battle Net developer server, Naeri shows update 2.00 has already been applied, and thus will be out sometime soon. Meanwhile the live update is 1.68, meaning that what is most likely an Overwatch 2 beta will be out soon.
This news follows previous leaks from Overwatch content creators after a secret developer meeting that "left them very optimistic for the game's future."
Currently, Blizzard hasn't spoken on whether these leaks are true, and there's been no official news concerning an Overwatch 2 beta. Despite this, players remain optimistic.
