Developer updates Kaplan confirmed that Overwatch fans will learn more about the upcoming sequel at BlizzCon Online, which takes place February 19-20.

There are also new competitive maps, modes and heroes, but these additions will also appear in the first Overwatch for free.

The rest of Kaplan’s developer updates focus on a new free deathmatch map called Kanasaka. Based on Japan’s location, Kanasaka is currently a free map that can be tested with PTR. The Overwatch Winter Wonderland 2020 event is also underway and will continue until January 5th.
