Community Manager Lylirra hat im Verlauf des heutigen Abends in den Battle.Net Foren angekündigt, dass die Mitarbeiter von Blizzard Entertainment den aktuell auf dem PTR von Overwatch vorhandenen neuen Patch scheinbar bereits heute für die PC-Version dieses Spiels veröffentlichten möchten. Auf den Konsolen erscheint dieses neue Update für Blizzards Hero Shooter dem Bluepost von Lylirra zufolge aber leider erst in der kommenden Woche, weshalb sich die Spieler auf der Xbox One und der PS4 leider noch etwas länger auf den Release dieses Updates gedulden müssen.

Dabei beinhaltet dieser neue Patch dann die erste offizielle Saison für den gewerteten Modus von Overwatch, die im Gegensatz zu den eigentlich für solch eine Saison geplanten 3 Monaten in diesem Fall allerdings nur ungefähr 2 Monate lang aktiv laufen wird. Aus diesem Grund endet diese Saison bereits am 18. August 2016 und geht nach einer Pause von ungefähr zwei Wochen dann in die am 01. September 2016 startende Herbst Saison über. Die kurze Dauer dieser ersten Saison liegt dabei dann einfach daran, dass die Entwickler die Saisons an den Jahreszeiten ausrichten und der Sommer 2016 in einigen Teilen der Welt bereits am 01. Juni 2016 gestartet ist.

Ansonsten werden die offiziellen Patchnotes zum Launch dieses Updates vermutlich im Verlauf der kommenden Nacht in den Battle.Net Foren erscheinen.


Hey all,

If you’ve been following our developer videos or forum posts, you know that the Overwatch team has been working hard to finish our upcoming patch which includes Competitive Play (as well as a few other quality-of-life changes). From the beginning, our intent has been to release this patch by the end of June—and since July is nearly here, we wanted to give you a quick status update.

Patching on PC and Console

First, we wanted to be upfront and let players know that we won’t be able to release our Competitive Play patch on all platforms at the same time. The patch will be going live on PC today, while PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players can expect it sometime next week. We don’t have an exact date to share, but we can confirm that the patch is going through approvals right now on both platforms.

We know this isn’t an ideal way to deliver new content, so we’re going to continue to refine our patching processes over the next few months in an effort to sync up our release dates across platforms as closely possible. Although our Battle.net client will always allow us to be more agile on PC, we hope to reach a point where we can release major updates on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 simultaneously.

In the meantime, stay tuned to PlayOverwatch.com (or follow us on Twitter) for all the latest patch news and updates.


Shorter Summer Season

We also wanted to let players know that the first season of Competitive Play will be an abbreviated one, lasting only two months instead of the normal three. 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). As a result, our inaugural season will include approximately 1.5 months of play rather than the full 2.5 months, ending on August 18 across all platforms. The Fall 2016 season will then begin as scheduled following our standard two-week off-season break.

We’re super excited to release Competitive Play, and we made the decision to move ahead with a shorter season for two key reasons. One, we want players to be able to start working towards their Competitive Play rewards as soon as possible. And two, we believe this first season will teach us a lot of about what works well, what doesn’t, and what players are really looking for from a competitive system in Overwatch. Competitive Play is definitely one of those features that will take us a few iterations to get right, and by getting the system out there sooner, we can start making improvements based on your feedback sooner too.
