Overwatch introduces cross-play, with cross-progression to follow

Overwatch introduces cross-play, with cross-progression to follow

That’s according to new game director Aaron Keller, who said in a video update that the feature will allow people to play with their friends across PC, Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch. There’s no firm release date on this functionality just yet, aside from the fact it is coming in the near future.

Blizzard’s online shooter Overwatch is going to have cross-play “soon”.

The company is also working on cross-progression, meaning users can carry over their hard-earned stats and so on between different platforms. This isn’t coming alongside cross-play, but is something that is planned for the future.

In order to enable cross-play, users need to have a Battle.net account. From there, players have to link this to whatever console they are on, per the feature’s FAQ.

Cross-play is launching in a beta form in the near future.

Keller became game director of Overwatch following the departure of Jeff Kaplan from Blizzard. He is the latest in a long line of high-profile departures from the developer.
