Overwatch's Summer Games Coming Sooner Than You Expect

The latest Overwatch developer update is out and about. This time, Jeff Kaplan provides a brief update about what players can expect over the course of the summer. Most notably, Kaplan lets players know that the Summer Games event will be coming "sooner than you expect". In addition, a number of smaller tweaks will be added. For instance, if players complete an additional weekly challenge during the Summer Games, they can unlock an Epic Skin.

Don't look for a new hero in the immediate future. While "he" -- and Kaplan specifically said HE -- is in the works, he will not be released during the summer in all likelihood.

Other things in the pipeline include:

  • new options for the hearing impaired
  • improved cheat detection - if cheating is happening in a match, it will be shut down, though players other than the cheater will not be penalized for the shutdown

Check it out and let us know what you think in the comments.
