While the first beta had its issues and was definitely lacking in some areas, it was overall a success and gave plenty of player feedback for Blizzard to use in the future. Despite the lack of new heroes, the gameplay itself was praised by fans for being fun and fluid, and the new modes had issues but were still enjoyable.
Meanwhile, the player recomposition from 6v6 to 5v5 has kinks to work out, but has the potential to be just as, if not more, fun than the original format.
With the beta over, it seems Blizzard already has some exciting new updates to share with the player base. In a blog post titled, A New Journey Is Right Around The Corner, the developers share their thoughts and thanked the players for all the feedback.
In the end, the blog post shed some light on the fact that June 16 would reveal the future of the Overwatch 2 beta, and how to gain access to it. PlayOverwatch, Blizzard's official Overwatch account, released a new tweet alongside the blog post, telling players to "Save The Date" on June 16.
While we don't have concrete info on the details, it can be assumed, at the very least, to contain information about the second beta, along with some balancing tweaks. Hopefully, it adds a bit more, potentially with a new hero or game mode, but that remains to be seen.
