Overwatch 2 was officially announced, with a cinematic and gameplay trailer, in 2019. It has been over two years since then and yet we seen no closer to the online multiplayer shooter's release.

Blizzard Entertainment has revealed that characters will boast new looks and abilities, however, they may not be improved per se. A new rumour floating around within the Overwatch community supposes that the long-awaited sequel may actually not be as visually upgraded as Blizzard Entertainment would have you believe. Rather, it may inferior to the first game in that regard.

Back in November, we reported that a newly filed job listing indicated that Blizzard Entertainment was working on a new mobile game related to Overwatch. Now it seems that mobile game and Overwatch 2 may actually be one in the same.

You see, Overwatch fans have noticed that certain in-game designs, be they character or environmental, appear to be greatly simplified in comparison to how they appeared in the first game. For instance, Torbjörn's blaster and hammer (as you can see below). Fans speculate this may be in effort to make Overwatch 2 compatible with mobile devices.

Blizzard Entertainment are yet to address the speculation. Should they, we will be sure to let you know.

Blizzard is dumb enough to make that mistake so I wouldn't rule it out, but Overwatch Mobile should get the CoD treatment were they can really milk their fans. Give everyone Soldier 76 and the skull mask spectre dude then throwing everyone else into loot box gatcha hell (which isn't too far off from where OW1 is at). Hold unto D.va for 4 months then hype her release up and watch the money from frustrated players roll in.

Aside from the lava, it all pretty much seem like aesthetic changes for the new skins.
