Overwatch 2 on Steam

Blizzard, for the first time, is planning to introduce some of its PC games on Steam. The company revealed today that it will begin this journey with the release of Overwatch 2 on August 10th. However, Blizzard hasn’t provided specific information regarding what other games might be added to the platform.

Blizzard’s President, Mike Ybarra, stated in a press release that while maintaining Battle.net as a primary focus, they are aware that “players are seeking the option of Steam for some of our games.” He reminded gamers that even though Overwatch 2 will be accessible on Steam, it still necessitates a Battle.net account for gameplay and to benefit from features like cross-platform play. Steam’s friend list will also be available to players, allowing them to invite their Steam friends. Blizzard, however, did not confirm Steam Deck compatibility, but this won’t deter players from attempting to run the game on it.

In addition to Steam compatibility, Overwatch 2 is slated to receive a major update on the release day. This will include PvE missions, a brand new PvP mode, and a fresh hero. The company refers to it as Overwatch 2: Invasion, claiming it will be an “excellent opportunity for newcomers.”

Blizzard has yet to disclose the details of other games or their launch dates on Steam, mentioning they will release this information “at the appropriate time.” Those eager to get Overwatch 2 on Steam can now add it to their wishlist, and they will receive a notification when the game launches on August 10th.
