New Overwatch Short Story: What You Left Behind

Overwatch Developer Update - June 2019
Game Director Jeff Kaplan sat down to give another Overwatch developer update!


  • The community has been asking for more story, more character development.
  • Recently released a new short story for Baptiste.
  • Some characters in the story may become bigger parts of the Overwatch universe in the future.
  • Baptiste Reunion Challenge is coming. Unlock an epic skin for Baptiste by winning 9 matches in any mode.
  • Some additional rewards available to unlock. Similar to the Anna & Diva challenges in the past.
  • A big patch is on the horizon with new features.
  • Replays are coming, they will live on your career profile.
  • Replays will show your last 10 played matches.
  • Full suite of spectator tools will be available, watch your replays from any point of view.
  • Replays will help players become better by learning from their past matches.
  • When the game is patched, old replays will be cleared. If you really want to save something be sure to record it.
  • On PC you can watch Overwatch league replays shortly after the match happens.
  • Minor balance changes coming, they are on the PTR.
  • Assault mode has had one minute removed from the time you have to capture point B.
  • The goal is to speed up the pace of Assault mode games.
  • Respawns will be better. If you die as the enemy team captures point A you will be more likely to spawn at B to stop snowballing.
  • New competitive season is coming.
  • There will be a brand new competitive free-for-all deathmatch season as well.

    His whole backstory as well as him being introduced as a character was so lackluster and without
    any strong promotion outside of a comic and some minor tidbits.
