Overwatch announces cross-platform

The floodgates are open. ‘Cross-play’ is now live in Overwatch, meaning that PC, Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch players can all hop into games together.


As a quick reminder, everyone can play casual modes like Quick Play, Arcade and custom games together. Competitive Mode will remain separate on PC, though console players can all join the same ranked game lobbies. PC players can’t opt out of cross-play, but folks on consoles can.
