No Overwatch 2 at Xbox Games Showcase 2024

On June 9, 2024, the Xbox Games Showcase event went live and featured a bunch of games, creators, and partners. While Blizzard revealed the release dates of World of Warcraft: The War Within plus Diablo 4's Vessel of Hatred expansion, Overwatch 2 wasn't mentioned. This disappointed some Overwatch 2 fans.

For example, the OWCavalry account on social media posted an image to express their disappointment. The image, inspired by the "Man" meme, features Orisa, who is sometimes referred to as "the horse" by some players.

Overwatch 2 Season 11 news and updates

Other accounts expressed their thoughts as well. In replies to Overwatch 2 executive producer Jared Neuss, a couple of users asked about the upcoming season. JonathanGo7051, for example, expressed concern.

"Jared why wasn’t OW2 featured in the Xbox Showcase yesterday? With S11 releasing in 10 days it was a great opportunity for the trailer to be showed," SkaVorah also wrote. "Why wasn’t the Peru map still revealed? Why are there no blog posts for a long time? Can we please have some kind of update?"

Later, folks on the Overwatch 2 team reassured players. While Neuss stated there's no reason to worry and that "there's lots of exciting stuff on the way," principal artist Mike Hardison wrote that the team has been making progress. However, "making good stuff takes time."

As of June 11, the trailer of Overwatch 2 Season 11 has not dropped. The last update on the game's official YouTube channel is the livestream for the 2024 Overwatch Champion Series (OWCS) Dallas Major, which happened live at DreamHack Dallas on June 2.

That's all for now. However, stick around on esports.gg for more Overwatch 2 news and updates.
