Perfect for Halloween: Appear Offline Rises from the Grave

Perfect for Halloween: Appear Offline Rises from the Grave - MMORPG.com

Jeff Kaplan has posted on the Overwatch forum that its team and the other Blizzard game teams are interested in bringing the "Appear Offline" ability to the Blizzard launcher. The fact that the feature is missing is very keenly fate in recent weeks after the launch of the Blizzard Voice feature that allows players to "quick join" any of their friends in chat with or without being invited.

We would like to add an "Appear Offline" option to Overwatch. We are in the process of coordinating this with Battle.net and the other game teams. Because our social system is a cross-game system (WoW, Hearthstone, Heroes, SC2, D3) adding this functionality is not trivial for us. I know there has been discussion around this feature for a long time, and things have definitely not moved at a rate which is acceptable, I can assure you we care about the feature and want to figure out how to make it happen.

Being one of the only multi-game launchers that does not offer this functionality, it's good to hear that it may indeed be on its way.
