Overwatch's new game director Aaron Keller releases his first developer update, announcing two upcoming events fans should be on the lookout for.

Overwatch is in a precarious position. Content support for the original game has apparently ended, Overwatch 2 is still without a release window and former director Jeff Kaplan has left the team. Communication and transparency are essential to maintaining the relationship between Blizzard and the Overwatch community, so Blizzard has shared a new Overwatch developer update from its new director Aaron Keller.

The title of Keller's first Overwatch developer update is "What's Next," however, the short update doesn't delve into what's next for Overwatch 2, but when fans can expect to hear more information. Keller reveals two upcoming events that will delve even deeper into what Blizzard is working on for fans to look forward to. He also notes that Blizzard is "dedicated to sharing more information" about the development of Overwatch 2 in the future.

The first Blizzard event to come, and what Overwatch fans are most concerned about, is an Overwatch 2 PvP showcase that will go live on May 20th. the sequence. Keller says he and the team will also discuss some of the team's philosophy for the next iteration of competitive Overwatch, with a focus on the changes. Lead Hero Designer Geoff Goodman and Associate Art Director Dion Rogers will also participate.

The second event will be more low-key, but will offer Overwatch players the chance to submit questions directly to the Overwatch team. There will be an Ask Me Anything session on the Overwatch subreddit on May 24. The focus will be on the last five years of Overwatch's development, so it's more about Overwatch's fifth anniversary than PvP or other gameplay. It's still an opportunity for fans to ask about these matters, though.

Clearly, when Keller says Blizzard is dedicated to sharing more, he apparently means getting started right away. Two events happening in May are a quick turnaround. It's also an important statement from Keller, because Blizzard's lack of communication and details about Overwatch 2 has been one of the biggest criticisms of its ongoing development thus far. Blizzard expects to continue the trend in June and beyond.

Overwatch fans are undoubtedly hungry for more information about Overwatch 2. As Keller says in the video, PvE and co-op were discussed earlier, but PvP was not. Since PvP is easily Overwatch's, and presumably Overwatch 2's main focus, it's surprising that Blizzard hasn't shared any information about it yet. The May 20 presentation could end up being Overwatch 2's biggest event yet.

Overwatch 2  is in development for PC, PS4, Switch and Xbox One.
