Overwatch Closed Beta Returning In February

Posted on by Ryan


Everyone seemed to love Overwatch while the closed beta was available and were sad to see it go. Despite not returning this month, Overwatch’s Game Director Jeff Kaplan wrote that the game would be returning on February. Stating..

“While progress has been great and the team has been working super hard to get everything implemented on time, we’re not quite ready to bring the Closed Beta back online just yet. We’ve been pretty open about the fact that we could slip into February from the beginning, but a big reason for this delay is that we really wanted to add one more big feature to the next beta patch.”

The new game code has not been announced and no details have emerged. Kaplan continued by saying..

“By [delaying the beta], we can make sure we can include the new game mode along with the new maps. This will also allow us to do some additional polish to the game’s progression and reward system. Though all these features will still technically be a work-in-progress during the beta, we’d like them to be at a certain quality bar before releasing them for testing.”

Overwatch is currently in development for PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4.
