Overwatch 2 has been under construction for a long time, and recent events may indicate the release of a beta version in the near future.
There may be some time left until the release of the beta version of Overwatch 2. Blizzard Entertainment and Activision Blizzard in general have come a long way in the past year; From allegations of ill-treatment and serious harassment of employees to a sudden takeover by Microsoft. The same is true of Blizzard Activision games, and the works under construction have had many ups and downs over the past year. Overwatch 2 is one of several major Blizzard projects under development. Although the turbulent development cycle and delays of this shooter game are not hidden from anyone, but apparently the situation will change soon.
As seen by two Twitter users named Helba_The_AI and OverwatchCaval, Blizzard recently uploaded a new version of Overwatch to the development team with a ID of 2.00 on Battle.net servers. This information appears to be deleted at this time, but can be found on BlizzTrack.
Given the large gap between the previous version of Overwatch 1.68 and this version, it is thought that a beta version of Overwatch 2 will be available in the future; Especially considering that Overwatch Demo 2 was also uploaded to Battlelet at the same time.
Although the exact time of the release of Overwatch 2 was not known, Blizzard announced its delay and Diablo 4 late last year. If the multiplayer game has a long way to go, a propane beta could be enough to re-name Overwatch and give Blizzard enough time to release the full version. At least that’s what Overwatch fans are expecting, and we hope to hear from players soon.

Interestingly, in September last year, it was confirmed that the initial version of Overwatch 2 will be used in the Overwatch League 2022 tournament. This tournament will be held in April 2022 (unknown time between April 12 to May 10, 1401) and therefore the release of a beta version of the game in the coming weeks will not be far from the mind. Of course, this confirmation was made before the announcement of the delay of the Overwatch 2 game; Therefore, it is not possible to speak about it with certainty at the present time.
