Diablo 4, Overwatch 2 Delayed Indefinitely

Activi­sion Bliz­zard has delayed both Over­watch 2 and Dia­blo 4, two of Bliz­zard’s high­ly-antic­i­pat­ed games. This was announced in the lat­est quar­ter­ly earn­ings, with the com­pa­ny say­ing that both launch­es will be lat­er “than orig­i­nal­ly envisioned.”

These are two of the most eager­ly antic­i­pat­ed titles in the indus­try, and our teams have made great strides towards com­ple­tion in recent quar­ters,” the state­ment 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 into the future.”

The state­ment also not­ed that this will delay any “finan­cial uplift” for the com­pa­ny over the next year. “But we are con­fi­dent that this is the right course of action for our peo­ple, our play­ers, and the long-term suc­cess of our fran­chis­es.” Unfor­tu­nate­ly, no new release dates were announced. How­ev­er, since Activi­sion Bliz­zard already antic­i­pates a finan­cial slump for the next year poten­tial­ly means these titles won’t be released until 2023.

In anoth­er sec­tion of the investor pre­sen­ta­tion, Activi­sion Bliz­zard did note that the Over­watch League will be play­ing an ear­ly build of Over­watch 2 start­ing next spring.
