Leaked Overwatch 2 concept art has seemingly revealed an incoming Battle Pass feature.
A concept for the Overwatch 2 main menu on ArtStation shows all the options players would expect, such as Play and Shop, alongside a new setting for the Battle Pass, as reported by Attack of the Fanboy.
While the screenshot isn’t official and may not represent what features will be in the final version of Overwatch 2, adding credibility is the user who posted it: Blizzard senior UI artist Jayson Kirby.
He held this position on the original Overwatch until March 2020 when he transitioned to an “unannounced project” according to his social media profiles.
An explanation appears under the image states that “the goal was to simplify and refine the Overwatch look even more. The focus of the menus was to really show off the Heroes in close up detail. As the player progressed through the menus, the camera and hero position/poses would change dynamically.”
While Overwatch 2 remains without a release date, development appears to be ramping up as these screenshots have appeared just a few weeks ahead of the game’s closed beta which is set to begin on April 26.
Blizzard also recently revealed that Overwatch 2’s PvP and PvE modes will be released separately, though didn’t say when the complete editions of either would be released. The split means that Blizzard will be able to release a version of Overwatch 2’s PvP sooner than the PvE mode.
