According to a recent Facebook Q&A, Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan said that the competitive multiplayer mode for the new Blizzard title will become available sometime in June. Kaplan did not unveil a specific date.
Overwatch rolled out today for PS4, Xbox One, and PC following a lengthy closed beta (and a brief open beta that I wrote about here), but the competitive mode was slashed from the more recent beta and has not made it to the game’s launch.
Blizzard is aiming to extend the length of the ranked season from one month, and the team behind the mode is reviewing how frequently Sudden Death occurs in online matches.
