No more divisions in player groups: Now, apart from classed games, Overwatch players can meet even on different platforms.

While all efforts are focused on the development of Overwatch 2, whose exit window has still not been specified (and has certainly been delayed as well by the pandemic), Blizzard continues to make players wait with some news on his FPS.
Starting today, players on PC and Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch consoles will finally be able to come together to play games with friends. In order to preserve competitive integrity, Overwatch will not however have total cross-play in competitive games, but only between players on consoles (we are still awaiting this distinction for other competitive games!).
And a new challenge
However, this does not include cross-progression, so players with a copy on different media will continue to expand their collection independently on each version. For more information on cross-play, a well-provided FAQ can be found this address.
Blizzard took the opportunity to introduce the Deadlock challenge, centered on Ashe. By winning games within a time limit, players will reach milestones by winning exclusive cosmetic items. It will also be possible to get nice tags by watching live streamers. The challenge will end on July 5th, so now is the time to get started!
