Overwatch 2 and Diablo 4 Delayed

Overwatch 2 and Diablo 4 are being delayed, Activision Blizzard revealed amid today's earnings report.

Activision Blizzard announced the delay in a slide titled "Update on Our Pipeline," saying that while it still plans to "deliver a substantial amount of content" next year, it is now "planning for a later launch for Overwatch 2 and Diablo 4 than originally envisaged."

"These are two of the most eagerly anticipated titles in the industry, and our teams have made great strides toward completion in recent quarters," Activision Blizzard said. "But we believe giving the teams some extra time to complete production and continue growing their creative resources to support the titles after launch will ensure that these releases delight and engage their communities for many years in the future."

Blizzard previously announced that Overwatch 2 development was progressing well, and that the team had "passed an important internal milestone." Diablo 4, meanwhile, recently changed its director.

The release dates for both games have been left up in the air. Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2 will be released in 2022 at the earliest, and could launch much later than that.
