Activision Blizzard is doing something. The already quite old Battle.Net launcher will get a general overhaul with new features and a more modern look in the foreseeable future.
After a beta phase, Activision Blizzard is now apparently ready to slowly give the go-ahead for Battle.Net 2.0. The extensive update of the launcher should be published shortly. For the time being, however, only in parts of North America until stability is guaranteed. The remaining regions should follow in the coming weeks.
The new update includes, among other things, the possibility of filtering your games in your account, favoring them and arranging them as you wish to create a better overview. It is also possible to split the games from Blizzard and Activision.
The social features of the launcher, in particular the friend list and status, are also being expanded, but messenger and notifications are also being spiced up. There is also a revised layout for the news and update area. Improved contrast, screen reader support and keyboard navigation should also round off the operation.
