The Overwatch 2 PvP Beta has come to an end, but there's more events on the horizon.

Yesterday, Blizzard announced the end of the Overwatch 2 PvP Beta. It was the first chance for a hands-on experience that players got for the upcoming sequel, adding reworks and a new hero into the mix.

Overwatch 2 Game Director, Aaron Keller, shared his thoughts on the beta in a recent blog post, saying, "The Overwatch Team would like to take a moment to convey a heartfelt thank you to all the players that took part in our first beta. It was so exciting to see our community playing our game. The enthusiasm for this game and this universe means so much to us, it always has, and it always will."

He went on to say, "We can’t wait to take everything we’ve learned from the beta and apply it to the game, and we’re so excited to get it back in front of you."

With the beta all wrapped up, players are looking ahead to the next stage of Overwatch 2's development — and it looks like they won't be waiting long. In the blog post, Blizzard revealed that the next they'll be back with more information on how to gain access to the next stage.

Additionally, a new event for Overwatch 2 is planned for June 16 where more information will be given surrounding the game's next beta and the months beyond.
