I'm slightly confused as to how the PvE content works. As someone who never really got into Overwatch that's the part that interested me the most.

I was always slightly disappointed that there was no story mode in the first to get to know these characters better.

Overwatch is a really cool game. I was in on it early and enjoyed it for several months. But I can't keep up with live multiplayer games like that very well, so I fell off pretty hard.

Looks like the PVE will be similar to the Event co-op modes just permanent. 

 

This leak from a while back is proved true bit by bit...

Overwatch 2 is now in full production as a "it will fix it release". Its just left 4 dead with robots, played the flashback seasonal event? its that for 60 dollars and exclusive cosmetics

the game is set before and after the "Winston Home Invasion." The memes about Overwatch being entirely backstory was strongly taken to heart.

Based on the trailer for Diablo IV I just saw, I would not be surprised one bit if Diablo IV was a shlooter about a year ago before they slapped together whatever the fuck I just looked at. But as a more realistic response, I could see people throwing in obviously fake information to make it harder to identify them, and also not everyone at Blizzard would legit know what was going on with every single game in production. Too much of the leak has been absolutely accurate though. The parts that are inaccurate are wildly inaccurate to the point of parody, while the accurate parts have been 100% spot on with almost no deviation. Too specific to be guesswork.

Yeah, but all the WoW stuff was either right, or just hasn't happened. None of the WoW leaks have been wrong so far. Like, things can change really fucking fast. Shit get scrapped all the time. See Anthem.  Also, Reaper hasn't be made gay yet, but Soldier 76 was. It could have been they swapped who is gay, or they are both gay. 76 being gay was happened before the leak tho. Still, after seeing OW2's trailer and gameplay most, if not all, of the non-lore related leaks have been accurate. The Lore leaks might be accurate, but that won't be known until more info comes out. 

 

But like even the leak about Sylvanas is accurate, but the devs were wrong. They expected people to come around to her. They haven't and the newest trailer makes it all worse. They have been making her into WoW's main character for a while now and just now made her stronger than the fucking Lich King and his undead army combined. No one wanted that but Blizz pushed it because they thought people would come around. No one wanted to see the Lich King turn into the Bitch King. This is what fucking happens when you start making books and not game content. Halo and Gears both have had this issue. Stop it with the fucking books.

Tracer is gay why do they need a gay guy too?

It will save them from having to change the Chinese version.

I mean, I think it is funny they made the Call of Duty character gay.

I'm just glad to see that Toronto will be a new map and there will be a Canadian hero.

 

This has to be for next gen consoles, right?

Looks like it's coming to current consoles and switch but they would probably be likely to bring it out for next gen consoles too

I love Overwatch. I still play a round or two almost every day. But I’ve never really cared about the story or the PVE events.

I'm not sure what to make of all of this. On one hand, the announcements give it a lot of credence. On the other, if the games they ultimately release are good then we're kind of in a tough spot as consumers. If the games are good, and we want to play them and we buy them we're just encouraging this. Obviously this sounds like it's not a good place to work, but no one is making people stay at their current employers (While not a game dev specifically, I'm close enough to it to know there are TONS of opportunities).

 

It's also interesting how much this parallels with EA and Bioware after ME:A and Anthem. Even Ubi to a certain extent. Suits are trying to push for annual cookie cutter "living game" releases and gamers are (finally) stopping from buying them. That'll get the investors to (hopefully) realize that they need to listen to the developers (who are much more close to the actual customers).

THIS.   Blizzard has to know there's demand for it and how perfect it is for the world and characters they've made. There should be some backlash if they don't, even if it's only like 5 hours or something.

Not that anyone should be caping too much for Blizzard, but disgruntled employee sounds disgruntled.  They were wrong completely about Diablo 4 being a destiny clone.  Shockingly, a 4chan post should be taken with a massive grain of salt.

Except they haven't really created any type of compelling story for their characters. All they can do now is ruin it

But nearly everything else was very specifically accurate. And from what I can see all Blizzard employees are disgruntled. Also when did we take disgruntled to have anything to do with whether facts are true or not? I feel like we just toss that word around to discredit people despite evidence to the contrary being presented. Seems silly.

Welp, not gonna defend that lol. I knew of some fuckery going on at Blizzard but not to what extent it was happening in their games (haven't played Overwatch in a few years).

After spending 20 minutes googling news on Blizzard it seems there's much more going down there than I knew about, so won't say much else until I know more.  That said, regardless of how truthful or not that anon leak was, its still never a bad thing to take any info regarding 4chan and/or disgruntled employees with a massive grain of salt.  Don't get grifted, xbob.

I only care about the accuracy of the information, not the source. If it's accurate, it's accurate. And this information has been either extremely accurate to where it would be damn near impossible to guess one thing, let alone multiple, or completely inaccurate in a way that suggests the author knowingly included false information to make it seem less realistic or throw people who might hunt this leaker down off his trail. It's just too specific to be some bullshit some dude made up.

What? Maybe I'm not well versed in everything announced at BlizzCon, but there are only like three known things in that post, and they are all things which a reasonable person could guess would happen (what OW2 PvE will be like, the WoW level cap, etc.)

General gist for me is that if there is smoke there's fire... which goes to the question of if they release games that are fun and good then do we ultimately care?
