If you play a video game over and over again, it starts to feel repetitive playing on the same maps a million times. Overwatch is no exception. Over on the Overwatch Forums, there is s thread called “2 Maps A Year Enough?” where gamers are complaining about only adding 2 maps a year. This thread has received so much attention that Overwatch’s Game Director Jeff Kaplan posted on the thread that Blizzard is currently working on 6 new maps for the game. Kaplan stated..
“We currently have 3 maps in development, all past the initial playtesting phase that are “standard” maps (QP/Comp). While something could always change, all 3 of those are looking likely for a release this year.
We also have 3 non-standard maps in development (these won’t go in QP/Comp).
We also have a few other experiments going on.
Hopefully this will satisfy some of what you’re looking for. We want to play on these maps as badly as you guys do. We’ll work as fast as we can!”
