During its latest quarterly earnings conference call, Activision revealed that both Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2 will not come out in 2021. And while there won’t be a new Diablo or Overwatch game in 2021, the publisher confirmed that there will be a new Call of Duty game in Holiday 2021.
There is really nothing more to add at this point, and we know that this news will disappoint a lot of Diablo fans. From what we know so far, Diablo IV will be an always-online game, and will not offer an offline mode. The game will also have cosmetic micro-transactions, and there is no word on whether it will support mods. Additionally, Blizzard is looking into enabling cross-play support between all platforms. Diablo 4 will be using a new engine, will allow the camera to zoom out, and will have better animations.
On the other hand, Overwatch 2 will introduce significant engine upgrades that support larger maps for co-op (PvE) play. Furthermore, it will add a wide variety of new enemies and factions that players will encounter on their missions. The game will also introduce visual enhancements to most favorite heroes.
Stay tuned for more!
