“OverWatch 2” has been in development for some time, and recent rumors suggest that “OverWatch 2” doesn’t seem too far away from release. According tomedia Dexerto, a new exposed file may hint at the existence of an already playable version of OverWatch2. Recently exposed game files can be seen through Blizzard Launcher Laucher, which uses a label that is not visible in an OverWatch-like file.
The file name is named “prov2” and can be interpreted as “ov2” with prefix
These files are CDN (Content Distribution Network) files that publishers use to pre-allocate game data so that players can quickly download patches and updates from the nearest available servers.
Some OverWatch fans speculated that this might be a sign that game testing was under way, and that some beta versions (BETA) might follow.
Others believe the CDN update may indicate that Blizzard is releasing a version of the game to begin the localization process, and may send some content to record the sound behavior of a bunch of different languages.
Blizzard, of course, doesn’t mean in any way that the beta version of OverWatch 2 will come soon, or that we’ll get a beta before it actually available. Therefore, it is best to have reservations about any speculation about this.
Blizzard has not yet announced when The OverWatch 2 will go on sale, but combined with the details of the current exposure, the game could be released in 2021.
