Blizzard's Newest Game, Overwatch Will Come to PS4 and Xbox One

Diablo and Warcraft developer Blizzard's next game, Overwatch, is coming to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. In the past, its games have been exclusive to PC, with console owners having to wait for an extended period of time before Blizzard would even consider a console release.

Of late however, this been changing with Diablo III and its expansions making it to the PS4 and Xbox One. Team-based shooter Overwatch seems to follow the trend albeit with what seems to be a simultaneous release for PCs and consoles. A promotional banner on Blizzard's website that's now been removed alludes to a June 2016 release for the game across all platforms. The retail disc version, dubbed as Overwatch Origins Edition, comes with 21 Heroes, and 5 Skins - Blackwatch Reyes (Reaper), Strike-Commander Morrison (Soldier: 76), Overgrown Bastion, Security Chief Pharaoh, Slipstream Tracer

It also comes with Overwatch-themed content for several existing Blizzard games: Heroes of the Storm - Tracer Hero; World of Warcraft - Baby Winston Pet; StarCraft 2 Portraits; Hearthstone Cardback; and Diablo 3 - Mercy Wings.

According to retailers in the US, the game should cost $60 (around Rs. 3,950) at launch. You can expect an official announcement from Blizzard at its annual Blizzcon 2015 event this week. As for India, Activision-Blizzard distributor Worldwide CD ROMs hasn't been keen on bringing in Blizzard's games. The only way you could get your hands on Starcraft 2, Diablo 3, or World of Warcraft on disc in India is by importing them yourself or via the grey market. Chances are, you can expect Overwatch to receive the same treatment.
