Overwatch News - Competitive Mode Launching Today for PC Only

Posted by Suzie Ford on Jun 28, 2016  | Comments

Competitive Mode Launching Today for PC Only | Overwatch | MMORPG.com

The Overwatch site has been updated with a note that lets PC players know that the competitive game mode is launching later today. PlayStation 4 and XBox One players will see competitive mode launch sometime next week, though no more specific date was written.

The first competitive season will be shorter than those later on, this time lasting only two months and later two and a half. 

We’re super excited to release Competitive Play, and we made the decision to move ahead with a shorter season for two key reasons. One, we want players to be able to start working towards their Competitive Play rewards as soon as possible. And two, we believe this first season will teach us a lot of about what works well, what doesn't, and what players are really looking for from a competitive system in Overwatch. Competitive Play is definitely one of those features that will take us a few iterations to get right, and by getting the system out there sooner, we can start making improvements based on your feedback sooner too.
