More Overwatch 2 and anime crossovers?

Players can look forward to more collaborations and improvements related to these IP collaborations in the future, according to Overwatch 2 game director Aaron Keller. For now, it's all about the popular One Punch Man anime.

Overwatch 2 characters will still look like themselves despite their One Punch Man skins as well. Keller described these skins as costumes since the heroes will sound in-character.

"Our intent is to integrate other characters into Overwatch but not to replace our heroes," Keller explained in a blog. "We'll learn each time we do this, we're planning on more, and get better at it each time."

Keller also went into how this collaboration is something that Overwatch 2 has never done to such a scale.

"We think the world of Overwatch and its heroes are special, and that their looks and sounds are essential to gameplay, and we want to preserve that while still having the ability to put other exciting franchises and brands into the game," he added.
