Overwatch Will Soon Receive a Ranked Play Mode

/ 4 years ago

Blizzard’s Overwatch became an incredibly popular game even before it was released in its final form, as over 9 million players tried it out in its open beta phase. Now that the game has finally been launched, we’re hearing reports that it might even receive a story mode in the future, which would definitely be great considering how awesome Blizzard’s stories are. However, a much more recent update will actually arrive in mid to late June, and it will add a Ranked Play mode for those of you who want to test your mettle against the world’s most competitive gamers. The news was revealed during a recent Facebook Q&A session, in which Lead game designer Jeff Kaplan wanted to assure us of the feature’s arrival.

It’s also worth noting that ranked play was originally a part of the game, but it was removed when Blizzard found out that it would sometimes pit low-skilled players against higher-skilled players. Even though this is undoubtedly a serious issue, it shouldn’t be too difficult to fix, which is probably why we’re looking at such an early release date for this new Overwatch mode.

Are you enjoying Overwatch so far, and are you looking forward to the new Ranked Play mode?
