Overwatch 2 Finally Bringing Back Fan Favorite Feature That’s Been Missing Since Launch
It’s been a long time coming, but it looks like Blizzard is finally bringing back a fan favorite feature to Overwatch 2. The On Fire feature was a much beloved feature of the original game that allowed players to earn bonus points for their performance in a match. However, it was removed in the sequel for unknown reasons.
Now, it looks like Blizzard is finally bringing the On Fire feature back to Overwatch 2. In a recent interview, game director Jeff Kaplan confirmed that the feature is currently in development and that it should be making its way back to the game in the near future.
This is great news for fans of the original game who have been clamoring for the return of On Fire. The feature was a great way to incentivize players to perform at their best, and its absence in Overwatch 2 has been felt by many.
With On Fire making its return in Overwatch 2, it’s only a matter of time before the game’s ranked mode gets a similar treatment. In the same interview, Kaplan confirmed that Blizzard is looking at ways to redesign the ranked mode in Overwatch 2.
While no specifics were given, it’s safe to assume that the ranked mode in Overwatch 2 will be getting a major overhaul in the near future. This is something that many players have been hoping for, as the current ranked mode is widely considered to be broken.
With On Fire and ranked mode both receiving major updates in the near future, it’s safe to say that Overwatch 2 is finally starting to live up to its potential. The game has been in development for years, and it’s great to see Blizzard finally starting to address some of the community’s biggest complaints.
It’s going to be exciting to see how Overwatch 2 evolves over the course of the next few months. With any luck, Blizzard will continue to listen to the community and make the necessary changes to make the game the best it can be.
