Overwatch will become a completely obscated product without playing until the sequel, according to a recent developer statement in a Reddit AMA section.
Overwatch 2''s developers recently held a Ask Me Anything discussion on Reddit, in which one player asked what the original version of the game might be, according to the game''s game director. It will effectively replace all existing live services for Overwatch.
Overwatch will no longer be available once its supposed successor launches. Overwatch 2''s release date has been set for October 4. The sequel has splintered all the developer focus for which players were frustrated because Overwatch remained there for a long time. With that said, they prefer to play Overwatch for the rest of the period.
