Earlier this week Sony reversed their bizzare stance on cross-play and the request from Gamers have been pouring in. Overwatch cross-play has always been highly requested, as Director Jeff Kaplan confirmed the team at Blizzard was looking into the possibility of it as recent as late 2018.
Now Blizzard has reconfirmed their interest in bringing cross-play to Overwatch. In an interview with Gamespot regarding the upcoming Nintendo Switch port and more Technical Producer Wes Yanagi talked about cross-play as how he would love to see it happen.
