Overwatch competitive play update is out now on PC but there is no console version in sight. That is because Blizzard Entertainment has confirmed a delay for its arrival on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Overwatch competitive play update was suppose to roll out alongside the PC version. The competitive update for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will now release sometime next week. That’s a relief as it isn’t a prolonged delay.
The update is going through approvals on both platforms as we speak but devs don’t have a final release date for it. Blizzard said in post:
We know this isn’t an ideal way to deliver new content, so we’re going to continue to refine our patching processes over the next few months in an effort to sync up our release dates across platforms as closely possible. Although our Battle.net client will always allow us to be more agile on PC, we hope to reach a point where we can release major updates on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 simultaneously.
Overwatch is a shooter developed by creators of Heroes of the Storm, Hearthstone and many other popular games. The title released recently across all platforms but with very limited content. However, that didn’t stop it from receiving shining reviews across the board.
Competitive Play was missing from the game at launch and was expected in June for all platforms. This delay means that console gamers will have to wait this early July to get wear their competitive Overwatch hats.
