Thanks for the detailed post!

Currently, do you focus hero development on more tank and especially support heroes? Because there only three healing supports right now an I'm sure players want a bit more diversity.

Or is the process of hero creation something that can't be guided that easily?
Jeff just wanted to give a big thanks for the info its very very rare to see a developer spend this much time working intimately with a gamer community and its not unnoticed :). Super stoked to see what is coming down the pipeline.

Two things I really want are more maps and social tools. I am interested in adding people in voice chat to my friends for later pre-made grouping etc. Right now I don't know who I am talking with, would be nice if there was some indicator icon. I think someone said you could right click from the p menu to add friends but have not tried this. I did get in the social menu and could not add someone due to spelling problems. Also some kind of Clan system which I assume is being worked on for competitive modes. Steam integration would help as well to get groups together before going into game, or something similar to steam/friends chat.
Jeff can u please mesh-up Arcade and Mystery Heroes in a new Brawl?
I love so much those brawls.

Brawls like... We're all soldiers now, or Shimada Brothers... are so bad. More fantasy! More ideas, please! All of you can do better than those brawls.
Wow i would like to thank you Jeff for your response!

If all the rumors and hints we've seen so far are true, then Sombra will be some sort of supporting sniper.

I mean, what you guys are planing. Where is overwatch going?


There's a lot going on right now. We're working on content patches throughout the rest of the year and into early 2017 currently. Of course we have long term plans, but we like to remain agile to respond to the current direction of the game and players' needs.

Please, more story updates and lore. OW might be a multiplayer shooter, but its story and characters that truly make it stand out - people actually care about the lore.
Wall-o-text crits you for ... I kid, I kid. ;)
Thank your for taking the time to do this. I'm sure that post represents a non-trivial portion of your time.

more heros- confirmed
more modes - confirmed ( but TDM /DM will not be one of them , as per the interview where Jeff was asked about it)
single player/story mode - confirmed ( but at a long point off )
more maps - confirmed

seriously guys come on , do a bit of research all of these questions have been answered , just go read the interviews and watch the dev videos ..lotsa good info in them.


Lame on no TDM. Maybe time to go back to FPS that have TDM like CS:GO and TF2.
Jeff, any updates on fixing the bug where we get a loss if we backfill a game? Also there's no loss recorded on one's profile if that person leaves a game intentionally

YES, please go back to those games and leave.

By the way, TF2 does not have TDM.

From what I understand, this bug is fixed in the patch that contains Competitive Play -- end of June.
I don't know if this question has been answered, if it has been then I'm sorry. Will there be any other way to get coins? Like Daily Quests ? Or something like in Hearthstone: The first win you get in the weekly brawl, you get a loot box ?

Are there going to be any more cinematic shorts planned to be released for the original hero cast?


We like making movies.

You do get an EXP bonus for your first Brawl. It's not displayed very well.

We aren't super keen on Daily Quests for OW -- we don't want to tell you what hero or role to play. We want you and your team to figure that out. It works really well in Heroes of the Storm and HS because you choose your class/role/hero before you queue...
