Will Overwatch ever get local 2 player co-op?

General Discussion
I love everything about the game but it sucks that I'll never get to play with the people I want to. Online is just not as fun as playing together in person. I'd definitely pay extra for the chance to have local 2 player mode.
i have mix view on this on one hand it would be fun to play with a buddy to sit on the couch, or bed etc. And on the other hand wouldn't it be harder to play split screen online i know a few people that don't have trouble with it. But really i'm in the middle on this idea of local two player mode.
Hey venomsting88-

Local co-op would be really cool but it's not something we're working on right now. Getting great performance on the console for this mode would be a significant amount of effort. Also as Razer points out above, split screen really changes the experience of the game, and we'd have to iterate a lot on that to make it feel great.

Thanks for taking the time to post, sorry that it's not on our list currently, cheers!

Hate to say it, but that would be a massacre for the console people... :/
I'm not being all "PC master race" - it's just a matter of mouse being easier precision and PC movements/games are just generally faster paced.
I've played on both PC and Console. The pace is very different. The PC players would be at an unfair advantage. :(

You wouldn't have to iterate a lot if you made split screen only for a local session. Me personally don't need split screen multiplayer. I want local coop to play 1x1 (+ bots) with my brother/friends. That would be huge.
Please don't give up on this idea. If you made it I'm sure many people would pay for this.
Sorry for my English.
Way to necro this post for the second time in a row.
