While the global community of Overwatch players eagerly awaits the premiere of Overwatch 2, the representatives of Blizzard decided to provide very interesting information related to the first installment of this popular multiplayer production.
It has been officially announced that Overwatch will soon receive cross-play support. This means that soon each player will play together, regardless of the platform they have. The exact release date of this highly anticipated option is June 22, 2021.
Cross-play will debut in Overwatch first in beta so that the developers can fix any bugs. All players will also be prompted to create a Battle.net account linked to their game account. What’s more, everyone who logs in to Overwatch before the end of 2021 will receive a special Golden Loot Box – all in celebration of the launch of cross-play.
It should also be added that the creators have prepared a special FAQ with answers to questions that may bother the community of players.
We also remind you that there will be no BlizzCon again this year. The developers are already planning a replacement digital event that will take place in early 2022.
