Overwatch Developer Update Talks About The Competitive Open Queue
The latest Overwatch developer update has been released and Jeff Kaplan talked about the Competitive Open Queue as something that will be permanent in the game.
The Competitive Open Queue is where players are able to pick the character that they like in the game instead of the regular 2-2-2 split found in the Role Queue mode. Right now this is the second most popular mode in Korea.
Kaplan said that, “in Korea, Competitive Open Queue in Arcade is the second most popular mode being played right now, While in North America Competitive Open Queue is less popular than Mystery Heroes, or even Workshop modes being played in the game browser.”
Get to watch the Overwatch developer update below:
The mode is hopefully available by early July said Kaplan, “Very shortly, Competitive Open Queue will come down for a while, We are going to work very quickly, as quickly as we can, to bring back another shortened arcade version of Competitive Open Queue that will go live sometime in June, we’re thinking mid-June, but don’t hold me exactly to that date.”
Kaplan added, “Then, in early July when Season 23, the normal Competitive Season starts, Competitive Open Queue will now become an official mode that will be supported alongside the Role Queue Competitive Queue.”
He also explained how the mode will work by saying,“You’ll go to the Play menu of Overwatch, you’ll select the Competitive card, then underneath the Competitive card will be two options: one will be Role Queue and alongside of that will be Competitive Open Queue.”
Some players who are concerned about the tuning and balancing of the game in the future need not worry. It will still get those fixes up until the Role Queue mode.
