‘Overwatch 2’ Comes to Steam August 10, A Selection of Games to Come

Blizzard finally graces the Steam platform.

Blizzard announced in a blog post today that they will be bringing Overwatch 2 to the Steam platform come the 10th of August. Along with Overwatch 2 will come a ‘selection of games’ overtime as well, marking the first time the company has published their games digitally outside of their platform. Overwatch 2 players on Steam will still need to connect a account to play, which enables the crossplay and crossplatform functions the game currently uses. will still be a priority for the foreseeable future, says President of Blizzard Mike Ybarra. “While remains a priority for us now and into the future, we’ve heard players want the choice of Steam for a selection of our games, starting with Overwatch 2 on August 10th. We’re happy to work with Valve to make that happen.”

    Should please the weirdest of all the gaming fans: the Store front fans…

  2. Games in more places is good, but the desire by the PC community at large to be locked to a single storefront/platform is very worrying.

    I have no problems when someone want to use less launcher if possible.

    And the Blizzard launcher is actually not that good. A lot of people dislike it.

  6. A slow rise to a new era.

  7. From my experience every PC store that isn’t Steam has some massive caveat to it.

    Probably. The only example I know of is ESO.

    You can either buy via their website or Steam. If ESO server are down, it’s also down on Steam. Funny enough if Steam is down, but ESO not, you can still only play on the ESO launcher via website.

    Honestly what’s the problem if someone only want to use one launcher ?

  10. It’s fine to want less launchers but the way many PC players are Steam only or the game is non-existent to them is damn weird

    Anyways…hopefully we get a CTR for PC finally made now alongside a Series version with 60fps
