Overwatch streamer and leaker Metro claims a possible change to skins could prove to be very controversial – if Blizzard decides to go through with it, that is.
Numerous rumors are pointing towards an announcement of Overwatch 2 coming at Blizzcon 2019. These are still unfounded so take them with a grain of salt, but we do believe a sequel has to be on the way eventually.
Overwatch released back in 2016 and it’s still trekking along, but some players are ready for the next installment.
Metro, who has been connected to a few leaks in the past, said that Overwatch 2 could be on the cusp of introducing a change to skins that will prove to be very controversial and leave some fans unhappy.
“I think it, it’s neither bad nor good, I think it’s more on the bad side and it’s gonna make people upset and it has to do with skins,” he said.
He does say he doesn’t want to leak it just in case Blizzard switches it up in time for the official release.
“I’m not going to leak it even if I was 100% certain about the info, Blizzard could still change their mind, right?” he said. “It’s still two weeks.”
The two weeks refer to BlizzCon 2019, where we should be seeing a bunch of Blizzard announcements. For right now, what he means by these changes remains anyone’s guess.
On October 17, Metro revealed Overwatch 2 would be announced at BlizzCon and said a short cinematic will be shown off.
He also said there will be leveling changes that change the abilities of heroes but didn’t really dive in much deeper than that.
However, based on these leaks, it seems like Blizzard will be mixing up a lot of what we know so far about Overwatch.
While these are still leaks for now, it won’t be much longer until we find out if there’s any weight behind them.
Blizzcon 2019 will kick off on November 1 and run until November 3. If you’re a Blizzard fan, you’ll want to tune in and see all of the announcements.
