During its latest earnings call, Activision confirmed that neither Diablo 4 nor Overwatch 2 will launch this year. The two titles were originally announced back at BlizzCon 2019 and have been completely missing in action ever since, and 2021 doesn't appear to be the right time for them either. That doesn't rule out more information and footage being shown for the pair at some point over the next 11 months, but as far as a release date goes, it's not happening this year.
We can't say we ever expected Diablo 4 to hit in 2021, but the Overwatch 2 situation is certainly an interesting one. The sequel was pitched as basically a huge update to the original game, also packing single player content. Whenever that arrives, it'll now be at least two years after its first reveal. Whether that speaks to Activision expanding the scope of Overwatch 2 or not is pure speculation — we'll have to wait and see what the juggernaut of a publisher has to say soon.
