A new report claims that Blizzard originally intended to release an Overwatch mobile game alongside Overwatch 2.
During the March 19 episode, Lewis, along with Christopher ‘MonteCristo’ Mykles, Duncan ‘Thorin’ Shields and Erik ‘DoA’ Lonnquist were discussing the major layoffs at Activision Blizzard and their impact on OWL and CDL.
The topic eventually shifted to mobile gaming and its massive growth in the industry, especially in the East. This is when Lewis revealed that Blizzard had plans to release a mobile version of Overwatch with Overwatch 2.
“I have it on good authority that the original plan before the pandemic really kicked everything into survival mode was that they wanted to release Overwatch 2 and Overwatch Mobile at the same time essentially,” he explained.
Lewis told us that Blizzard “wanted a mobile version of the game to be ready to go when Overwatch 2 was released with a view to announce it prior to the game’s release.”
