Overwatch Reporting System Coming To Consoles With Patch 1.14
Blizzard Entertainment has been supporting Overwatch since its launch and the studio is showing no signs of slowing down in regards to improving the game’s experience. Now, the studio has announced that Overwatch reporting system is coming to consoles with the next patch.
Game director, Jeff Kaplan, posted on the official Overwatch forums confirming that Overwatch reporting system is coming to consoles with the upcoming patch 1.14. He added that the Overwatch reporting system is currently ongoing development and improvements will continue for the feature over time.
It’s important to note the reporting system and punishments are very much an ongoing development for us. Improvements will continue over time. We are working on increased punishments for high frequency offenders, email notifications when your reports result in disciplinary action (we’re experimenting with this right now and we’ll expand this as we refine it) and eventually notifications in the game client when your report results in disciplinary action.
Fans have complained about the lack of reporting system since the game’s launch and after over a year from launch Blizzard Entertainment has finally addressed the issue.
Also, Blizzard Entertainment has revealed that it will be showcasing a new map at Gamescom 2017 along with a new animated short possibly revealing the Origins of the map.
Also, the Public Test Realm (PTR) received two new game modes for the game namely Team Deathmatch and Free-for-All. So there is a possibility that those who will attend the event will be given a chance to try out these new game modes for Overwatch and both of these game modes will be introduced to the game with the upcoming patch 1.14.
Overwatch is a first-person multiplayer shooter developed by Blizzard Entertainment for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
