According to Blizzard, when cross-play arrives, all console players will need to create a Battle.net account and then link it to their Xbox. Cross-play will be available for all game modes, except Competitive games, as Competitive players will be split into the two groups of console players and PC players.
We don’t yet have a release date for the launch of cross-play, but it will be “soon,” and Blizzard emphasises that cross-progression won’t be available when cross-play arrives, adding, “we understand that this feature is important for some of you, and it’s something that the Overwatch team is excited to work on in the future.” We’ll be sure to update you as soon as we know when cross-play will launch. In the meantime, what do you think? Have you been waiting for cross-play to arrive? Let us know in the comments!
