It looks pretty nailed down now that Overwatch is making its debut on the console next month. This assessment all stems from a couple of leaked retail listings. Nintendo may have been planning to make the official announcement later today during their Nintendo Direct.
Ever since Overwatch initially released on May 24, 2016, for the PlayStation 4, Xbox, and PC, it has taken the gaming world by storm. It won awards across the board, including The Game Award For Best eSports Game three years in a row. The competitive title continues to receive consistent updates, including new characters, and events regularly, as well as having sold by the proverbial truckload.
And now it seems as if those of you that own the Switch will soon be able to experience this team-based multiplayer first-person shooter for yourself. The rumor is that it will land Stateside on the 15th of October where the rest of the world will be able to get there hands on it on the 18th of the same month.
This official release should get confirmed in today’s Nintendo Direct stream, set to happen at 6 pm ET.
