Blizzard Scraps Overwatch 2’s PvE Hero Mode, but Remains Committed to PvE Experience

Blizzard has made the decision to scrap the highly anticipated PvE Hero mode in Overwatch 2 due to the lack of progress in its development. The team has created exciting content, including missions and new enemies, but the effort required to deliver a high-quality experience is extensive and there is no clear end in sight. Instead, Blizzard has chosen to focus on the live game and serving the players. This news may disappoint many fans who were looking forward to the dedicated hero mode with talent trees and long-term progression.

However, Overwatch 2 still has a lot of content planned. Seasonal story missions and a new support hero are confirmed to be coming in Season 6. While the original vision for the PvE mode has been abandoned, the addition of story missions aims to fill the void for players. The development team remains committed to PvE and is exploring new ways to deliver content, focusing on a seasonal cadence rather than a single big release moment.

Overall, Overwatch 2 is praised for breathing new life into the franchise and the upcoming content shows the team’s dedication to the game’s PvE experience, albeit in a different format than initially envisioned.
