Overwatch 's competitive mode is out today, but only on PC The highly anticipated mode comes to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One next week, Blizzard announced today. As the violations start to pile up, Competitive Play will be locked for an increasing amount of time. The heroes of Overwatch are many, powerful, and distinct—but their potential is amplified when they assemble into a formidable team. The characters are easy enough to pick up, with only two or three major skills, and they fit so neatly into a given role that you can jump in at any time with anyone and feel like you're helping your team.

This is because our Competitive Play patch is launching in the middle of the Summer 2016 season, which technically began on June 1 (a minor side-effect of our real-world season system).
Overwatch launched on May 24th and most of the Blizzard Watch crew has been obsessed with why they haven't received the Play of the Game, who is going to be the next hero , and why Matticus won't group with any of us. Everyone's complaining about turrets and Bastions right now, but the same thing happened in beta before the community learned to counter these threats.
