Overwatch Origins Edition splash

Gamestop may have taken some of the wind out of Blizzard’s sails at Blizzcon this weekend by outing Overwatch: Origins Edition on Playstation 4 and Xbox One. News outlets from Kotaku to IGN are reporting that their local Gamestops are indeed taking preorders. I myself have called a number of local Gamestops in the Metro Detroit area to confirm that they are taking preorders as well.

consolesAccording to one local Gamestop I spoke with, the estimated released window is late this year, early 2016. Rumors for a console port have popped up frequently recently, and this seems to all but confirm their validity. If I was a gambler, I would be putting my money on hearing an official announcement this weekend at BlizzCon.Now the real question will be if Blizzard mentions this preorder and takes the leak in stride and makes fun of it, or pretend it never happened.

Overwatch is the team-based shooter from the good folks at Blizzard that just recently has gone into closed beta. Expect a lot more news on Overwatch and other Blizzard games this weekend!
