Overwatch 2 to Get “New and Returning” Game Modes in 2023 – 6v6 Included? – In 2023, Overwatch 2 will have more game modes, both new and old. This information was obtained via an interview with game director Aaron Keller about Blizzard’s future intentions, in which he mentioned that some elements that were absent from the original Overwatch and its sequel may soon make a comeback.
Keller doesn’t give any hints as to what these changes would entail, but it’s highly likely that one of the resurrected modes will support 6v6, the key element that was removed from the original game. Playing an Assault map in Arcade mode is now the closest you can go to the original Overwatch, albeit this still limits you to a squad of five players.

Overwatch 2 fans should anticipate “a lot more” events and maps this year, according to Keller, who spoke with NME. Of course, new game modes will be the main attraction for many, and Keller adds that there will be “many new and returning game types” in 2023.
One of these will be “completely new,” which suggests that it will be unlike anything we’ve seen in any of the previous Overwatch games. Keller says he is “very happy” to present this new mode at a later time, but he doesn’t give any hints as to what it might be.

Overwatch 2’s fresh DLC has thus far been a tad on the sparse side. Undoubtedly, three new characters—Junker Queen, Sojourn, and Kiriko—were introduced at launch, and Ramattra appeared a short while after. The majority of what we’ve had was present in the original Overwatch, aside from that and the new 5v5 playstyle.
The primary selling point of Overwatch 2—a PvE story mode—won’t be available until later this year, so these additional game types will have to hold us over. As he says this, Keller also acknowledges that progress is “slower than we wanted it to.” The story mode will, however, be launched “gradually” later in 2023, so we should soon have a clearer notion of how it will play.
