Overwatch headed to PS4, Xbox One, will not be free

This is interesting. According to GameInformer, GameStop employees were told this morning that they can begin telling customers that Overwatch is coming to the PS4 and Xbox One, and that the price for all versions (including PC) is $59.99.

This clears up any confusion as to Overwatch being a free-to-play title; it won’t be. Sorry everyone. There’s no mention of a subscription which means Blizzard may treat Overwatch like they handled Diablo — which is important because Blizzard never just releases a game and stops development on it.

This hasn’t been directly confirmed by Blizzard yet, however GameStop was told all this in a corporate email, so the likelyhood of this being wrong is relatively slim. We’ll most likely hear more about this at BlizzCon on Friday and Saturday so stay tuned for more news.
