Blizzard will broadcast two hours of Overwatch 2 gameplay May 20, focusing on the upcoming changes to the game's PVP mode.

Game director Aaron Keller, who stepped into Jeff Kaplan's shoes when Kaplan left in April, announced the livestream in his first development update. The stream kicks off at 3 p.m. ET, and promises the most we've seen from Overwatch 2 since BlizzConline.

Keller will be joined on the broadcast by lead hero designer Geoff Goodman, associate art director Dion Rogers, and hosts Matt "Mr. X" Morello and Mitch "Uber" Leslie. Overwatch influencers Stylosa and Cuppcaake will also make appearances.

Keller says the broadcast will see the team "play through new maps and talk about some of the philosophy behind changes coming to Overwatch 2's PVP."

The Overwatch development team will also host an AMA on the game's subreddit to talk about the last five years of Overwatch development.

"We're dedicated to sharing more information on the development of Overwatch 2 with all of you," Keller said.

Overwatch 2 has yet to receive a release date.
