The long-awaited PvE portion of Overwatch 2 is scheduled to go live later this year and fans are eager to finally experience the story campaign since first seeing it ages ago.

Although the developers have been mum on PvE’s eventual release and are keeping details close to their chest, an update on the OW2 test sever has players talking.

Of course, Season 6 is still a ways off and is expected to launch in August with a new support hero, but some players think that PvE could be included in the mid-season portion.

“First playable branch (in test) of season 6 of Overwatch 2!” exclaimed FLX_nf. “It’s early for a simple hero, don’t you think?”

In the replies, players voice their opinions with many believing this could be connected to the release of PvE.

“PvE probably also coming out with Season 6, no way they’re testing 2 seasons ahead of this one just for the hero,” one said.

“I cross my fingers for the PvE,” another wrote.

“Looking forward to whatever that is on September 12th, 2023!” remarked yet another.

Luckily, players won’t have long to wait for PvE news as the devs have promised a content roadmap in the middle of May that should give them an idea of when it will release and what other goodies are up their sleeve.
