Overwatch 2 Ramattra

 

Original (11/4): Overwatch 2 has been trucking along since its launch a few weeks ago, and Blizzard has now unveiled Ramattra as the latest hero for its shooter. The news was announced during the Overwatch League Grand Finals just a short while ago.

Blizzard notes that Ramattra began as a war machine, but “shed his munitions for a shield to protect his people by promoting peace and tranquility.” Right now the company is focusing more on his backstory rather than his playstyle, but information about the latter should be shared pretty soon.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 + 4

Following the launch of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2, many hoped that 3 and 4 would receive the same treatment. It turns out this was once the plan, but things didn’t work out in the end.

Tony Hawk actually revealed this information himself during a live stream with Twitch user andyTHPS. Hawk said that 3 and 4 were next in line for the remaster treatment, but the situation changed once Vicarious Visions became a part of Blizzard. When the two sides merged, Activision apparently looked for a different developer to take it on, but ultimately didn’t trust anyone else to take on the job.

Overwatch 2 release date

Overwatch 2 has a release date, and Blizzard has revealed that it will launch on October 4, 2022 in early access. Switch owners will be happy to hear that the title is also still releasing on Nintendo’s console.

Overwatch 2 features a new five-versus-five multiplayer format with cross-platform play and cross-platform progression. Blizzard says the game’s PvP “is designed to offer incredible and fresh competitive gameplay with a new, free-to-play model and major game updates such as new heroes, hero reworks, maps, modes, and premium cosmetics.”

Nintendo Activision Blizzard

Last week, Nintendo of America president Doug Bowser issued an internal email to all levels of the company – including development partners such as Retro Studios and Next Level Games – regarding reports and controversies that have emerged pertaining to Activision Blizzard.

A lot has been coming through over the past few months regarding Activision Blizzard’s poor handling of its employees, particularly when it comes to sexual misconduct in the workplace. It all cumulated last week following a report from The Wall Street Journal. In its article, the publication wrote about Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick, who was aware of sexual harassment and misconduct that had been taking place within the company, intervened to protect abusers, and apparently even dished out his own abuse.
