It’s been almost a year since Overwatch was released and it has become a massive hit with fans, spawning fan fiction and a whole host of theories about the heroes. Well now the game director Jeff Kaplan has been talking about what they have planned for the first anniversary.
Throughout this year we have seen a few bits of new content, three new characters, new gameplay, new skins and some special events. There has also been a lot of re-balancing been done which is nice to see. So far all of this content has been free and it looks like this trend isn’t going to change.
In regards to what’s going to be coming soon Kaplan had this to say, “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.”
He has also said that there are three “non-standard maps in development”. This apparently won’t be released into the main playlist which means that it will probably go into the arcade mode. So with all of this it means that there are exciting times to come in the world of Overwatch.
