All new heroes, maps, and modes will be accessible in Overwatch despite the sequel being sold as a separate game.
Here’s the full blurb on Overwatch:
Overwatch is a colorful team-based shooter game starring a diverse cast of powerful heroes. Travel the world, build a team, and contest objectives in exhilarating 6v6 combat.
When you enter a game of Overwatch, you’ll need to choose a hero to play.
Maybe a cannon-toting ape from the moon appeals to you. Perhaps you prefer a time-traveling freedom fighter. Or is a beat-dropping battlefield DJ more your style? Whoever you want to be, there’s an Overwatch hero for you.
