The hope of some “overwatch” fans soon to see a local couch coop in the game, probably will be buried for the time being. The effort, especially with the consoles, is too high.
The calls of some fans of the ballroom with comic optics called “Overwatch” after a local couch coop were heard in the past several times. Blizzard’s Lead Software Engineer, Bill Warnecke, has now made a clear headway in the overwatch forum in a response to a user question.
Although it is in principle a “really cool thing”. At the moment, however, the Americans would not be concerned with it. Because it would be a “significant effort”, if one on the console for such a mode would achieve a good performance. The split screen would really change the “player’s experience”. The shooters’ creators would have to “iterate many things” so that a good result can be achieved.
Even if the division of the supporter does not fit, with the “Uprising” -coop mode, there is a similar variant to the required local coop. If Blizzard gets a big boost, the developers would notice the demand and signal the demand.
