Blizzard has confirmed that the open beta for Overwatch won’t include competitive Play.


Those who played in the closed beta were able to participate in Competitive Play but according to Blizzard after testing they realize it needed some work before it can be released.

“We worked extremely hard to get Competitive Play in the game for closed beta. We’ve been reading feedback from the community and taking it all to heart. As a result, we’ve temporary disabled Competitive Play for Open Beta so that we can rework the system and make it better” game director Jeff Kaplan stated on the official Overwatch site.

Competitive Play will go live sometime after Overwatch launches.

The open beta will begin for everyone on May 5th and end on May 9th. If you wish to participate click the link here on how to download the beta.

Overwatch is set to release on May 24th for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
