Blizzard has announced that Overwatch’s competitive mode is launching on PC today. Due to the launch’s timing, the first competitive season will only be 1.5 months long. Competitive mode’s console launch will happen sometime next week.
A Blizzard rep had this to say about the delivery of the upcoming patch
“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.”
Time to turn on the tryhard and get those golden skins!
