Overwatch streamer Metro claims Blizzard will reveal Overwatch 2 at BlizzCon, citing an anonymous source with access.

Overwatch 2 will be announced following a new Overwatch animated short, Metro claimed in a series of tweets published Thursday and Friday. The short will reportedly depict Mei being injured and then saved by a young Genji, with Tracer and Winston also to appear.

Metro further claims Overwatch 2 will have both player-vs-player and player-vs-environment elements in addition to a leveling system that will affect how heroes play.

"For example," Metro wrote, "there will be an upgrade/change to tracers [sic] pulsebomb that makes it so if you stick an opponent, all units close to the target that got stuck will also be stuck with a pulsebomb."

Metro cites the same anonymous source that previously leaked Ashe's name and abilities ahead of her reveal at BlizzCon 2018.

Kotaku first reported Blizzard was working on Overwatch 2 in June.

BlizzCon 2019's main event is scheduled to begin Nov. 1.
