An Overwatch pro player claims we should expect Overwatch 2 news soon after a "secret" meeting was held by developers.

Sam ‘s9mm’ Santos teased that there’s “not too much more waiting” after the secret developer meeting with pros and content creators earlier in December.

“The news that I’ve heard about Overwatch 2? Sh*t is hype as hell. Not too much more waiting,” he said during a Twitch stream. While he couldn't give specifics of what Blizzard said during the presentation, it’s finally an update for fans waiting for Overwatch 2.

This leaves fans hopeful and excited for an update Overwatch 2 after the sequel’s release date was pushed back by around a year, according to a Blizzard investor call in November. Fans will get a preview of the newest installment when pros are set to play on an early build of the sequel for the OWL 2022 season. Gameplay has already shown off during the 2021 finals and has gotten mixed reactions from fans, so here's hoping that the update will be welcomed by all Overwatch players.

Here's hoping for another AMA event hosted on the competitive Overwatch Reddit that can give us the chance to ask the developers more questions about the upcoming game.
