    I think it's referring to the in-lore resurgence of a new overwatch team.

    God I'd love some actual lore after Winston's hit the recall. Their origins are great, but can we see what the future holds? Perhaps there's a bunch of new chameleon-like omnics out there that are against humanity (ala Null Sector) and are appearing like Overwatch members to create this attacks, so we have an explanation of why OW and Talon are teaming up, as well as giving a lore reason why they're fighting each other.

    This seems to be a super common confusion (although watching the video clears it up a bit).

    A lot of people seem to think that "Overwatch 2.0" is going to be a new game, but it's just a lore thing. It's the rebuilding of the Overwatch team as an organisation in the world. It's referring to the in-game world and the advancement of the story in that universe, not any kind of new product for us.

    That said, you will see people out there who think that there is going to be a new game coming out but that seems extremely, extremely unlikely.

    Lore continuity. Overwatch was dismantled and outlawed. Winston recently reactivated them in response to talon's activity.

    Overwatch 2.0 is what the next "super hero team up to fight evil" could be. Since reaper turned evil, soldier turned solitary anti hero, McRee pretty much the same, etc.

    Overwatch 2 as a game will most likely never be a thing. With all the "game as service". At least not for the 10 next years.

    as long as they continue to add trash rightclick heroes moira/brigitte

    next should be one that kills everything in a 10km radius

    Not sure why they choose to call it by that name, seeing all the confusion it generates. Unless they are just going for the clickbait routine.

    I have always had the suspicion that Mercy is up to no good and is actually the true leader of Talon, we all know she likes to experiment on people like Reaper and Genji, whos to say she isn't behind the experiments on Widowmaker as well, Talon was probably created like every other evil organization "to save the world".

    Titles can be quite confusing indeed.

    This thread speaks of Overwatch, the fictional organization, NOT Overwatch, the game from Blizzard. There is no second game, no Overwatch (the game) 2.

    Overwatch 2.0 is the new fictional organization (within the game) and this is about which heroes that will join the new organization and NOT which heroes that will be in the "new game" that doesn't exist nor will for many many years, if ever.

    There's no Overwatch 2 'yet', but with Blizzard, you can bet they will expand on the IP, although it may take them time.

    As for the team.

    As for a 'new' team. I guess:

    Highly likely:
    Winston
    Tracer
    Rein
    Torb

    Being the core 'old' overwatch.

    Certainly nots:
    Widow
    Reaper
    Junkrat
    Roadhog
    Moira
    Doomfist
    Sombra

    Being the 'evil' characters

    Probables
    Genji
    Mercy
    Brigitte
    Mei
    Pharah
    Soldier/Ana/McCree (given their status as fugitives, this is less certain)

    All being characters with close links/prior members

    'Neutrals/either way'
    Bastion
    Hanzo
    d.Va
    Orisa
    Zarya
    Lucio
    Symmetra
    Zen

    All being characters with no links at the moment/past, but could be recruited.

    Nit-picking, I know, I know. Americans are not known to pronounce names outside of English very well, BUT:

    Brigitte: https://de.forvo.com/word/brigitte/

    See, I'd assume people were referencing Widowmaker, rather than Brigitte.
