No more rounds of Push until the games out
We were just a few months out of the release of the multiplayer component. While theres been plenty of opportunities to test it out, Blizzard is now confirming that there will not be a second beta before the games'' release.
Jon Spector, the CEO of Blizzard, went to Twitter yesterday to note that the beta will be launched again but it appears that it will not happen.
Although we will continue testing every day, we were not planning any additional public Beta tests, according to Spector.
Today marks just two months until Overwatch 2''s launch! We know players are eager to dive in and have raised concerns about the possibility of a third public beta. While we will continue testing OW2 daily internally, we''re not planning any additional public Beta tests. (1/2)

The executive of Blizzard claims that the organization is focusing its efforts on launching the best game on October 4.
No more til October
Some of the changes from Thebeta have been awful for the gameplay, but some of them felt like a change in pace. I was thrilled to see those popping into the rotation in place of dual Control Point maps.
I can also get behind the impression that the experience was a little too significant, like a big patch for a live-service game rather than a full-blown 2-bearing sequel. However, it is likely to happen in October, but at some point later on.
It will still be taking over thespace, replacing the original. Its also moving the team-based hero shooter to a free-to-play system. Despite factors, players seem a bit wary of a new monetization model.
Is it difficult to say that another beta will help alleviate some concerns prior to the launch of? I do think some individuals are eager to get hands-on with the final version of the game and see how much has actually improved, myself included. But it seems like you may have to wait until October 4.
