Expect replay system to come first.
Two heavily requested features for Blizzard Entertainment’s Overwatch are now being worked on as per director Jeff Kaplan. These are a system for replays and a spectate-only function.
Kaplan explained why these two features – which are pretty basic for most competitive shooters – have taken a while to release. “Both have been on our schedule for some time but have gotten bumped for different reasons. The same people who would work on those features ended up being re-prioritized to working on high bandwidth server technology, Season 2 competitive mode changes and matchmaking improvements.
“We also have another feature request in front of the replay system – the ability to save highlights. Some of the work here is a step towards replays (another top requested feature) so it makes sense for this to come first when the time comes.”
