PlayStation Brazil leaks Overwatch 2 release date – but is it real?

The official PlayStation Brazil Twitter account may have inadvertently revealed when Overwatch 2 could release to the public.

Overwatch 2 was officially announced at BlizzCon 2019, but Jeff Kaplan said during the weekend that the team had “no idea” when the new game would be coming out.

“Like I mentioned, Overwatch 2 is still in development, and we have a long ways to go before this game is fully ready,” Kaplan explained in an Overwatch 2 panel at BlizzCon 2019. “Just let us make it great… We don’t have a date in mind.”

But it seems like fans may have gotten a hint at the game’s release date after a tweet from PlayStation Brazil about the next chapter in the hero shooter.

“2020 will be the year Overwatch 2 comes to PS4,” the tweet reads, according to Twitter’s translate feature, apparently setting a solid timeframe for the game’s release.

The interview linked to in the tweet is just a Portuguese repost of one originally published in English from November of 2019.

Even though the tweet says Overwatch 2 will be coming in 2020, it still leaves a lot of time open for when the game could be coming out.

If the 2020 release date is correct, fans shouldn’t expect to see Overwatch 2 come out before Fall, or for the 2020 Christmas season at the latest.

Of course, no matter how much fans want to see the next chapter in the series, most would probably prefer if the team took their time and made it a great game rather than rush it out.

Kaplan has seemed hesitant to give any kind of solid release date for Overwatch 2 on the few occasions he’s spoken about the game so far, so it seems like he wants to take his time as well.

The one OW2 level we actually got to see at BlizzCon did look well-polished and like a lot of fun, so even if the game doesn’t end up coming out in 2020, there’s plenty for fans to still be excited about.


Genius Overwatch trick lets Mercy escape fights on Numbani

Mercy has a new path to safety on Numbani thanks to an extremely clever Overwatch trick that lets her glide away from intense teamfights.

If you’re ever stuck in a pickle as Mercy, you can always fall back on her Guardian Angel ability to get you out of trouble. Moving from one spot to another in the blink of an eye can easily keep you alive when things are looking grim.

Angelic Descent also comes in handy, enabling Mercy as one of the more mobile Supports in the game. Her kit might be limited in terms of offensive output. However, she can move through the air like no other hero. It turns out her movement abilities might even be more useful than you’d first think.

A genius new spot on the first point of Numbani can have you gliding to safety in no time at all. Here’s what you need to know so you can execute it for yourself.

Directly behind the Payload is where you want to line up for this unique trick.

If you’re positioned towards the back of the first capture point, you might be familiar with the often-deadly drop. It can be all too easy to get booped and fall to your death in this position. Whether it’s a Lucio flying overhead or a Wrecking Ball crashing into your team, you’ve likely experienced some pain in this location.

However, playing near this spot is worth the risk for this particular reward with Mercy. A simple tree beyond the railing is actually the perfect distance to jump right into. Once wedged between the branches, you can quickly walk forward and navigate up the front of the tree.

While you might think there’s nowhere to go from here, Mercy’s Angelic Descent completely changes the game. With a perfectly timed jump, you can slowly glide around the corner. This lets you rotate all the way behind the first point and land safely next to the street.

There’s a Mega health pack waiting for you upon landing as well. Just in case you get tagged up while making your escape.

It might not come in handy for every team fight, but if things are looking dire, it could be the perfect way to get out with your life.

Not feeding the enemy team is often just as important as building your own Ultimates. So keep this unique trick in mind the next time Numbani appears in rotation. It’s just another next-level tactic for Support mains to have at the ready.
