A developer update on Overwatch 2, including details regarding the Sombra and Bastion hero reworks, is set to be revealed live during the Overwatch League Grand Finals on Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. ET, Blizzard announced Thursday.

In Partnership with the OWL, the Overwatch 2 devs' special updates will be premiered during the pre-show and halftime events of the Grand Finals.

At the forefront of the reveal will be the reworks for Bastion and Sombra, two popular heroes who will also have their new designs unveiled, explained and perhaps seen in action as well as part of a scheduled pro player Overwatch 2 exhibition match.

The release date of Overwatch 2, the highly anticipated sequel of which the OWL is said to be switching to next season starting in April 2022, still remains up in the air.

Despite this, however, plenty of news regarding the upcoming game has been out and about, particularly when it comes to updates for the title's hero roster.

OW2 will reportedly evolve the look and feel of the in-game world, with more dynamic environments, larger scale battles, additional in-game storytelling events, and improved atmospheric effects and shadows. All of the returning heroes in Overwatch 2 will also have a brand-new look, with greater detail and higher fidelity, as showcased so far with at least 14 revealed designs from Lúcio to Pharah.
