Big changes are coming to Overwatch with Overwatch 2, but will they be enough to bring back players back to Blizzard’s struggling team-based online shooter?
After reading through Gareth’s excellent analysis of Hearthstone, I’ve decided to talk about Blizzard’s other hit, Overwatch.

As 2017 marches through August and into September, Hearthstone has just experienced the launch of its sixth expansion in three years.
