Diablo IV and Overwatch 2 delayed

Blizzard Entertainment announced today that two of their much-awaited games; Diablo IV and Overwatch 2 have been delayed.

While there is really no release window released for both Diablo IV and Overwatched 2, fans hoping it would be anytime soon would be disappointed as the game has been delayed to an indefinite date.

Here’s what they have stated, via the conference call:

As we have worked with new leadership in Blizzard and within the franchises themselves, particularly in certain key creative roles, it has become apparent that some of the Blizzard content planned for next year will benefit from more development time to reach its full potential.

While we are still planning to deliver a substantial amount of content from Blizzard next year, we are now planning for a later launch for Overwatch 2 and Diablo IV than originally envisaged.

These are two of the most eagerly anticipated titles in the industry, and our teams have made great strides towards completion in recent quarters. But we believe giving the teams some extra time to complete production and continue growing their creative resources to support the titles after launch will ensure that these releases delight and engage their communities for many years into the future.

These decisions will push out the financial uplift that we had expected to see next year. But we are confident that this is the right course of action for our people, our players, and the long-term success of our franchises.

Diablo IV is currently announced for PS4, Xbox One, and PC while Overwatch 2 is planned for release for PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.
