Overwatch 2: The game will not get any more PvE content in 2023

    Though the future story missions are surely interesting for Overwatch 2 fans, the set that will be released as part of the Invasion update will unfortunately be the only one available in 2023. With this information coming directly from Overwatch 2 Executive Producer Jared Neuss, PvE fans can be guaranteed that they will have to wait a long time.

    The PvE content in Overwatch 2 has been the subject of numerous debates, with the community taking issue with the hero shooter genre in general. The removal of skill trees and Hero Mode was a big setback.

    Fans then criticized the prices of the Invasion packages once it was revealed that they would have to pay to permanently access the story missions. PvE enthusiasts now have to deal with yet another disappointing piece of information: the upcoming batch of PvE missions won’t arrive until sometime in 2024.

    This information comes directly from Overwatch 2’s executive producer, Jared Neuss, who was just interviewed by content creator Emongg on everything coming in the huge Invasion update.

    While Neuss had a lot to say on Season 6’s new PvP mode, such as how Overwatch 2’s Flashpoint isn’t going competitive right immediately so that players can get more practice in, he also mentioned PvE. Neuss specifically said that the next batch of PvE missions will not be released in Seasons 7 or 8, with the exact launch window still unknown.

    Given that Overwatch 2 Seasons last a few months and Season 6 doesn’t start until August 15, the earliest gamers may expect more missions is around March 2024 with Season 9 – but this is simply supposition.

    During the Emongg interview, Neuss explained that the long wait is because Blizzard wants to hear from the community regarding the three Invasion missions and the bonus London mission. Blizzard can use this feedback to improve the next missions by introducing more mechanics or altering objectives that do not feel as entertaining as they should be.

    This may be a sensible strategy, according to early assessments from Overwatch 2 content developers like KarQ who got a chance to play the PvE early. In his early impressions, KarQ scored the Invasion missions a 6.5, saying that while the cutscenes and dialogue were excellent, the missions were too simple and players spent too much time standing and firing.

    This is the type of feedback that will hopefully be used to strengthen the next part of Overwatch 2’s plot, and having more comments come August 15 should be quite helpful. Overwatch 2 is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
