Five years after its release, Overwatch is finally set to offer cross-platform support. By the end of the year, all platforms will be connected, Blizzard said. This means that players on PC, Xbox, PlayStation or even Switch will be able to play with each other.
However, let us state that this cross-platform support is an important topic. For example, this support will not be available in competitive game modes, and for console players, this option will be directly turned off. Blizzard will also present everyone with a gold loot box to celebrate this beautiful news.
To join the cross-platform system, console players must combine Battle.net accounts with console accounts. However, console players will be able to enter games by joining the same group as PC players. According to the statement, in the early days of this support, there will be no cross-progress support. But the play’s new director, Aaron Keller, says they will soon bring that support.
