Overwatch has been one of the biggest shooters in the world since its launch. This was due to the great gameplay, interesting heroes and wonderful world that was brought to Overwatch. Since the beginning of the game, it was available on PC and console. Ever since then, players have asked, is Overwatch cross-play and if not, will it ever be? Well, the answer to that question was finally answered.
In a brand new Developer Update, Overwatch Game Director, Arron Keller, let everyone finally know the answer to the Overwatch crossplay, also known as cross-platform, discussion.
The answer of yes, to Overwatch cross-play, is one that has been met with a lot of excitement. One of the main reasons was that it was completely unexpected. With all of the updates for Overwatch 2 and nothing for the original Overwatch, many had just assumed that they had given up on doing anything for the current title.
While this is likely more of a sign for what is to come with Overwatch 2, there is no doubt that in the remaining time of Overwatch original, that fans will enjoy this being added to the game.
There are some aspects to cross-play that will not be making it and others that will come later. An example of this is that ranked play across platforms will not be available. There are plenty of other questions that can have their answers found on the PlayOverwatch website.
This is certainly a step in the right direction for Overwatch and the Overwatch team. They are clearly listening to the crowd and giving their fans things that they have been asking for since the game came out.
