Blizzard pushes Overwatch’s redesigned competitive mode to June

She's a knockout.

Update: Blizzard has corrected its tweets; the patch is June, not July.

A series of tweets from Blizzard just before the holiday weekend have confirmed that Overwatch’s competitive mode isn’t comingĀ until later this summer — “mid-to-late July.”

Kotaku pointed out that competitive play was originally planned for closed beta and was disabled to be re-designed and implemented “sometime after Overwatch launches.” Lead Game Designer Jeff Kaplan told players a week ago that the mode would be back in time for the game’s first major patch. One might therefore conclude the first major patch will also be dropping in July.
