During the question session, fans asked a lot about Overwatch 2 and, answering their curiosity, the developers revealed some very interesting information about a future beta and a possible ping system.

A fan asked on Reddit if there will ever be a beta of the game and the response from the developers has been extremely direct. John Lafleur, the technical director di Overwatch 2, in fact stated that players will almost certainly be able to preview the title with a beta. Unfortunately, however, Lafleur we did not want to unbalance on a possible date and claimed that, even if he knew about it, he could not reveal it in any way.

Later the developers also talked about a possible ping system. Since it was released Apex Legends all major competitive games have tried to emulate its communication system and Overwatch fans were also very interested in this feature. Apparently an embryonic ping system is already present in the game and the developers are working on it constantly. The game director, however, did not want to unbalance and stated that it is not yet certain whether this feature will be present in the finished game.
