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.

Speaking about the move, Activision Blizzard said during an investor presentation today:

Overwatch 2

Overwatch 2 was announced a couple of years ago, and the project is slowly coming along. You may remember that when the initial reveal took place, the game was confirmed for Switch.

During a Reddit AMA a little while back, Lafleur commented on the Switch version of Overwatch 2. While Blizzard is “working hard to make sure all of our platforms get the best experience, even in PvE”, when it comes to Nintendo’s console, he did admit that the hardware “is a little more challenging than some, and we’ll have to make some compromises there.”

Lafleur’s full words:
