Overwatch Is Coming To Consoles [UPDATE]

Since Blizzard announced Overwatch for PC last year, most of the gaming world has assumed it’s coming to consoles too. Now, GameStop’s all but confirmed it.

As of this morning, GameStop is taking pre-orders on the hero shooter for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, according to clerks at an NYC store I just spoke to.

They’re offering the game for $60, which feels off—this seems designed to be a free-to-play game—but who knows? It’s worth noting that Blizzard also sells the free-to-play PC game Heroes of the Storm in a $20 physical bundle, which comes with heroes and skins. So GameStop taking pre-orders for Overwatch doesn’t necessarily mean it’s not free-to-play.


It’s likely that GameStop just spoiled an announcement Blizzard planned to make at BlizzCon in Los Angeles tomorrow, so we’ll see if official news hits then. For more on Overwatch, check out our impressions of the beta.
