Overwatch Xbox Scorpio Support Is a ‘Wait and See’ for Blizzard

Highlights

  • Overwatch may include 4K support for Xbox Scorpio
  • An official reveal for Microsoft's new console is due this Thursday
  • The game already supports 4K on PC

Xbox Scorpio details are due to be revealed on Thursday. And there’s a possibility that popular hero shooter Overwatch may support it.

“With both the advancements that Sony and Microsoft have made to their platforms, we're super-eager to support in whatever way we can. We take kind of a wait and see approach. Our engine team loves doing things like supporting. Any time we can make the game look better, they like supporting it. Obviously we're supporting 4K on PC already, so it's something the game is capable of doing,” said Overwatch Director Jeff Kaplan to IBTimes UK. Although he went on to state that there could be some impediments to this.

“As long as we don't break the game in some other way, or incur some technical cost that is prohibitive, we would obviously try to go along with the advancements, and be very supportive of advancements on all of our platforms,” continued Kaplan.

Considering that Overwatch’s PS4 Pro support is nothing more than its UI and menus in 4K, it’s quite possible that Blizzard is simply paying lip service to the notion of a better looking and performing version of Overwatch on Xbox Scorpio.

Nonetheless, with an Xbox Scorpio reveal rumoured to have the likes of CD Projekt RED with The Witcher 3, you can’t rule out Blizzard’s support for Microsoft’s Xbox One iteration just yet.
