Overwatch has begun testing a new Deathmatch map. It is called Malevento and is available on test servers. Initially, the map was supposed to appear in an online shooter in mid-August, but plans were changed amid a scandal of discrimination against women and harassment in the company. The level is a small area of the Italian town with the ability to fight both on the street and in local interiors. The developers also confirmed that the location hides the secret Talon base, and Malevento has a lot of dark secrets in the past.
Fans criticised Blizzard for releasing the map. According to fans of the shooter, the developers of Overwatch are busy with maps for deathmatch, while the game is in desperate need of new content like a seasonal event, a new character or a mode.
Earlier it became known that Blizzard plans to release a sequel to Overwatch before the summer of 2022. The main reason for setting a tight release date was the fear of dissatisfaction from the owners of the teams playing in the OWL – the release of Overwatch 2 will allow the league to “restart” and return the interest of the audience.
