In the past hours Blizzard he held a developer PvP livestream to Overwatch 2, where the new game director of the title, Aaron Keller, has unveiled several new features that will be introduced in the main competitive modes of the shooter hero.

The biggest change from the past is that games in Overwatch 2 will no longer be 6v6, but teams will only consist of 5 members each. The classic 2-2-2 will therefore be transformed into a 2-2-1, with the presence of un only tank per side. 

The role of too oppressive tanks has always been a problem for Overwatch meta, and the development team has decided to take this path for the sequel precisely to try to balance the role, in order to also make the individual skill of each member of the most impactful team in every match.
