Overwatch 2 will move to five players per team for PvP. The news was shared by Aaron Keller during the Overwatch 2 livestream on Thursday. The news was a surprise to many as Overwatch has been a staple 6v6 game.

Keller went on to explain that Overwatch has always been involving over the years. When the game first launched, players could play six Winstons and then hero team balances were implemented. And the role queues were created, and Blizzard plans on continuing this process.

The team believes this will be the next balance effort for the community and shape the future of PvP and esports. It will be interesting to see how the Overwatch League changes as teams will have to suit up one less player.
