Overwatch 2 can borrow one of the most common gameplay features of Apex Legends, however, if it does, the feature will not be pure duplication. Most particularly, director Jeff Kaplan of Overwatch 2 has revealed that the team of Blizzard are well aware and are currently investigating and playing with the famous pinging mechanism of Apex Legends. Kaplan doesn’t know, but the group is talking about doing something that is similar to the Apex Legends ‘ ping system. Whether this trial would translate to an actual game playing element in the future.
Sure, Kaplan responded, when asked about if Blizzard would add a ping-system to the series on YouTube channel Samito. “We’ve got a great lead UI programmer. We’re awesome. His name is Junho Kim and last week he spoke to me about having to do again experimentation with a ping Device, “said Kaplan.” We both liked their ping device and thought it was fantastic when the Apex Legends came out… Expect to test from us. You remember that Blizzard used to mess around by adding a pinging-esq feature to Overwatch, but they were eventually unable to render anything they thought fit the hero-shooter. That said, it seems like the group has some thoughts about how the sequel can be handled.
PS4, Xbox One, Ios, and Nintendo Switch are under development for Overwatch 2. There was no indication at the time of the release, or if a game for the next generation of consoles was expected.
