Gamers who have desperately wanted to save their most impressive moments in Overwatch don’t have much longer to wait, according to Game Director Jeff Kaplan. After a series of posts on the Battle.net forums, Kaplan announced that the team is hard at work with making a highlight exporting feature.
One thing that has been long missing from Blizzard’s latest first-person shooter Overwatch is the ability to save and send highlights or Play of the Game clips to other users. Right now, aside from the clip that plays at the end of each match, players are restricted to only seeing five of their own highlights and even those are limited to each play session.
That issue looks like it will be a thing of the past very soon, as Jeff Kaplan reports that the game’s feature developers, which are “one of the smaller development strike teams on the Overwatch team” are hard at work creating a way to save and export the best highlight clips. According to Kaplan, the feature team has been working on the feature for months, and new details will be ready to reveal in early Summer.
This isn’t the only announcement that the Game Director has made today, as the Battle.net forums are full of updates from the man himself. Jeff Kaplan also revealed that Sombra will be getting a sitting emote in the next major content update, thanked players for pointing out a mobile bug, and teased a possible Gun Game coming to Overwatch.
Kaplan further announced that the next competitive season is set to take place in early June, leaving players just a few more weeks to finish their matches before the competitive scores reset. Fans who are invested in the competitive side of the game will be making their final pushes to rank up in the coming days, before this season ends.
It’s partially the interaction with fans during development that makes Overwatch such a highly-praised title and we’re happy to see that the Game Director is still so active on the game’s forums.
Overwatch is available now on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
