Overwatch For Consoles Might Have Been Inadvertently Confirmed By Blizzard
Blizzard might have just inadvertently confirmed that Overwatch is eventually coming to consoles, too.
As spotted by some gamers, the official European website of Overwatch had this in its source code:
Overwatch is Blizzard’s team-shooter for PC and consoles. Choose your hero from a huge roster of soldiers, scientists, adventurers, and oddities, each with their own unique set of abilities. Bend time, defy physics, and unleash a dizzying array of extraordinary powers in concert with your allies. Lead your team to victory in iconic locations across a near-future Earth. The world needs heroes!
This isn't very surprising, since Overwatch seems to lend itself quite well to consoles. PC gamers needn't worry, by the way: Blizzard has been very clear that it's targeting the PC platform for the launch, just like it did for Diablo 3. Overwatch will likely come to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but only at a later point, once it has been optimized enough both in terms of performance and controls.
In related news, yesterday Blizzard allowed a couple selected streamers to broadcast the very first Overwatch beta footage. You can find it embedded below; the Overwatch closed beta will begin on October 27 in North America, but Blizzard also announced that there will be occasional weekend open beta tests. We'll keep you updated about them and everything concerning Overwatch, so stay tuned.
