In light of the Activision Blizzard merger, Blizzard announced that some of its games are coming to Steam, starting with Overwatch 2 on August 10. In fact, Overwatch 2 already has a Steam page that you can check out here. According to a blog post on Blizzard Entertainment, they state, “As a free-to-play, team-based game, we believe Overwatch 2 is the perfect title for Blizzard’s debut on the platform.” All you have to do is connect the Steam version of Overwatch 2 to your Battle.net account, and you'll have access to all of your previous amenities, achievements, and heroes.
Overwatch 2: Invasion, the game's new PvE Story Missions, will also be available on August 10. With them comes a new PvP game style, two new maps, and even another new hero. And it'll all be available on August 10th, the same day Overwatch 2 is released on Steam. So, it's certainly an exciting time for Overwatch 2 fans, however, that's just one of many Blizzard games that are arriving on Steam.
Other Blizzard Games Arriving on Steam
Although Blizzard stated that their other titles will be available on Steam, they did not specify which ones. Furthermore, they did not provide a time frame. All the announcement said was, “As far as what’s next for Blizzard on Steam, we’ll be sharing more about potential other games coming to the platform when the time is right.”
So, it looks like it could be a little bit before we find out which of Blizzard's games is arriving on Steam next. We're keeping our fingers crossed for Diablo 4, but given how fresh it is, that seems doubtful. Nonetheless, older Blizzard titles like Starcraft II and Hearthstone are likely to make their way to Steam in, hopefully, the near future.
