Overwatch Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:

  • MarkPl08 IMark 🏳️‍🌈 (@MarkPl08) reported

    @OnTheDownLoTho This means Crash Bandicoot, Diablo 2 and 3, Most of CoD Games, Overwatch… All of that will land on gamepass (And let’s not forget that Microsoft will most likely push for Day 1 on gamepass in future as well) Jesus ******* Christ dude, this is insane

  • indivizual_seht Seht Aside (@indivizual_seht) reported

    @Dachsjaeger Overwatch 2 and Call of Duty available on gamepass day one...and exclusive in the xbox ecosystem. At that rate, Sony would be hard pressed not to permit the service on their platform.

  • tweeting_keith Keith Andrew (@tweeting_keith) reported

    @Chris_Dring But you do buy Call of Duty, Crash Bandicoot, and Overwatch.

  • avataryaya_ LegendOfYaya (@avataryaya_) reported

    @StrawHatHydro everyone: They got cod, overwatch, ME: so are we getting more crash and spyro games?! lol I don't think i've bought a mainstay cod since like 2015

  • PenguinLamont Penguin Lamont 🐧 (@PenguinLamont) reported

    @jodiede @Stealth40k Though yea, a Diablo 5 in 2030 would be exclusive or an Overwatch 3 in 2080 would be exclusive but CoD wouldn’t unless they change how Warzone operates. Plus maybe now Spyro & Crash can be in next Smash with how close Xbox/Nintendo are lol (maybe idk - I’m trying to be positive)

  • 5h3a_ shea, temp buffalo bills fan (@5h3a_) reported

    microsoft buying activision is one of those things that will *feel* good for consumers bc call of duty and overwatch and diablo and WoW will go on game pass, but will ultimately be bad as product quality gets diluted and nothing happens to fix cultures of abuse in gaming

  • AGamingBadger Harley (@AGamingBadger) reported

    @Storm_Spark Call of Duty is now exclusive to Xbox. World of Warcraft is now exclusive to Xbox. Overwatch is now exclusive to Xbox. Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon are now exclusive to Xbox.....

  • purple_wokey Snowman Wokey (@purple_wokey) reported

    @CharizardB17 Minecraft is a special deal because it's minecraft. Old overwatch will chances are stay being on multiple platforms no problem. Anything new though it's going to be like elder scrolls 6 and exclusive to xbox consoles. My assumption anyway

  • bro88bb43 Brody Benthin (@bro88bb43) reported

    @itsDJKENTO @KBABZonTV @Canadianguyehh Assuming so far that elder scrolls 6 and starfield are exclusives, I can only see call of duty and overwatch staying multi sadly. Smaller games like crash and spyro are gonna get that label slapped on em, if we get any new games

  • Meelz93 Meelz 🎸🎶 | MUSIC COMMISSIONS OPEN (@Meelz93) reported

    @MadDashMiltank Tbh the first thought I had was whether or not Actiblizz are in hot water, CoD, Overwatch and WoW are still gigantic names regardless of what they put out so M$ is looking at them like "I can fix her"

  • XenogamerYT Xenogamer (@XenogamerYT) reported

    Xbox do be making some BIG moves lately. Bethesda last year, Activision/Blizzard this year. The company that once struggled to find exclusives outside of Halo, Forza, and Gears now has The Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Doom, Wolfenstein, Overwatch, Warcraft, CoD, Crash, and MORE.

  • John09806571 John (@John09806571) reported

    @AlexTremo_uwu Literally the only good Activision game in the last 10 years are crash 4 which flopped anyway and overwatch, with overwatch 2 being a ******* meme at this point. Not to mention removing the ps userbase will kill it pronto. Huge l from Microsoft

  • XenokoYT Xenoko | Commissions Open! (@XenokoYT) reported

    @AlphaSquadron2 Nah, Microsoft literally bought Activision-Blizzard-King. Not only does that mean their games could come in the Game Pass, but most importantly, Call of Duty, Crash, Overwatch, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater and others now belong to Microsoft, and Phil Spencer is gonna be their new CEO

  • AlistarMacabre Macabre, The Banshee Badboy (👻ENVtuber & Vsinger) (@AlistarMacabre) reported

    @TaliesinEvitel The new hero in Overwatch is broken....Master chief too powerful needs to be nerfed

  • InsideMyStrange Inside My Strange Place (@InsideMyStrange) reported

    I'm a massive Sony fan, but I have no problem saying that they are ****** unless they start making some serious acquisitions. I don't care if you don't like COD, Overwatch or Diablo. Millions of people do and this acquisition is going to cause a lot of people to move to Xbox.

  • ChristinaMets15 what a Metstake🏳️‍🌈 (@ChristinaMets15) reported

    @DannyLeibs Yeah I mean Overwatch was fun &I loved it but i got super bored because there wasn’t a story mode to keep me engaged in the characters. Losing WoW is definitely a bummer for that crowd, but that series never interested me. But Spyro and Crash on anything but PS seems wrong

  • skippyspacef1sh Owen (@skippyspacef1sh) reported

    @CilaHax Microsoft now owns call of duty, overwatch, crash bandicoot, and a bunch of other **** I was not expecting to hear that news today

  • Wooooooble Richardi (@Wooooooble) reported

    @Xbox @ATVI_AB if they did this in like 2017 it would make sense. overwatch just won game of the year, cod was still going strong and crash bandicoot was coming back into the mainstream. but now, cod is dead, overwatch is dead with a sequel in limbo and crash bandicoot is just existing

  • The_CrapGamer THE CrapGamer (@The_CrapGamer) reported

    Call Of Duty: Diablo: Crash Bandicoot: Overwatch: Warcraft: Guitar Hero: Spyro The Dragon: Tony Hawk: Man....This is crazy.

  • Jesse_round2 Jesseround2 (@Jesse_round2) reported

    @IGN Going off what they’ve done before, things like war zone& overwatch will stay supported on Sony, but any game without a on paper contract with Sony before the merger is going to be ms exclusive. So cod, Diablo 4, tony hawk, crash badicoot, spyro, anything new at blizzard

  • TheRexTano Rex Tano (@TheRexTano) reported

    @splitend89 Hopefully they can fix some of the structural issues inside the company. It’ll make for interesting future for the franchises though! Overwatch 2 on Xbox only? 👀👀👀

  • DannyLeibs DannyLeibs (@DannyLeibs) reported

    @ChristinaMets15 It’s more than that. Overwatch, WoW, Diablo. But I agree, losing crash and Spyro sucks

  • vrinn10 vrinn 🇯🇲 (@vrinn10) reported

    @GameSpot broken cod and a dying overwatch and diablo cannot beat star wars

  • UndeniablyAlex Alex McMillan (@UndeniablyAlex) reported

    @SarahHamstera That means lots of things (Overwatch, Crash Bandicoot, etc.) are now locked to Xbox and PC via Windows, but the massive one is Call of Duty, which without it, Playstation might be in big trouble.

  • glass_soldier64 glass (@glass_soldier64) reported

    does phil spencer want that sweet, sweet overwatch dev breast milk for himself or something? why ******** would you do this and why does nobody seem to actually give a **** besides the scrimblo fans whining about how Crash/Spyro (very dead franchises) are gonna be exclusives

  • Minmatar0 JGMIII 🖥🖱⚽🎸🎮 (@Minmatar0) reported

    @nolonateo @Nibellion Cod is big like minecraft. Wouldn't make much sense to stop selling it when its such a cash cow. However i could see Diablo 4, Overwatch 2 and a new Crash game being Xbox/PC only and day one on gamepass.

  • gabrielmrqz Gabs Marx (@gabrielmrqz) reported

    @chillrogg You don't know how I'm expecting Microsoft to fix WC3, HotS and Overwatch

  • DominStation ********** Station (@DominStation) reported

    @Nycewithit1 @iamalitayyeb Yep i mean the only way to keep people happy on a sub service is consistent game drops its was inevitable msoft would have to add more teams and ips but adding Activision is a shock. huges ips COD warcraft diablo overwatch.. Those are huge for gamepass longevity

  • Scoot_SSB Scoot 🐢 (@Scoot_SSB) reported

    @NixKirbo Overwatch, cod, spyro, crash, Skylanders, candy crush, world of Warcraft, tony hawk, Diablo. A bunch of others too but yeah
