    This game can run on computers from 2012. This game's requirements are EXTREMELY low.

    PS4 and even Xbone lack crossplay, and you sure as hell don't want to face down PC players with mouse, KB, and 144+ fps.

    That said when DOOM multiplayer is fairly active, it tells you something about how limited the FPS options are on the system. So Overwatch Switch will likey have a healthy playerbase.

    I gues on earth.
    Good idea on paper, a bad one in reality. Although overwatch is kinda easy to run. I can see it running at 720p at almost 60FPS on the switch.

    Guys, have you played Paladins on Switch ? It's 1080p60 and it doesn't even look bad at all. I imagine OW is going to be mostly the same

    The game is going to run fine, I expect 720p60 low, maybe 1080p30+ docked. I was able to run it on very low-end hardware so the switch is not going to have problems. Saying that I already have the game on PC so I wont bother getting it for the switch.

    People really understimate the Switch and Nintendo/Coders witchcraft (no other way to call how they pull some stuff)

    Please don't make an assumption then throw in an even insaner contribution. Cross platform (going from factors in your assumption) would actually be an atrocious idea due to the fact that other console players would have a major advantage hence why PC and xBox/PS4 never crossplayed with Overwatch due to developers refusing the implement Mouse and Keyboard advantage on console like they did for Fortnite. Community has nothing to do with it.


    I'd like to argue that the League brought in more community I guess? However the e-Sports and online community are two different worlds at time (only recent collision was MMR mess up) so it's had its ups and downs but I think a lot of people managed to co exist in both the Fortnite and Overwatch community casually. In terms of professionally I don't think many players afaik dropped Overwatch as such, they just toyed with the Battle Royale then went back to Overwatch having Fortnite on the side occasionally. Could have that totally wrong but just taking from the circle I know.

    Didnt the wii had more consoles sold than the switch during the same time frame? Switch wont surpass the wii in total sales, but it will do get pretty close if they keep delivering games.

    why
    people are comparing overwatch to paladins at a performance standpoint

    lol

    do y'all remember who owns overwatch? what makes you think activision/blizzard will care enough to optimize it? warframe could easily run better but it's stuck with massively inferior, borderline unplayable unstable 30fps with no 60fps mode, and de/panic button are supposed to be good companies no?

    seems some people are pissed,
    but i can run OW at full 240fps with Gsync on my pc, unlike u nintendo fanboi, who are happy with 20-30fps game.

    Bro that's the key word, "happy with it"

    Why are you ragging on the community for trying to enjoy the games they want to play. You're just as bad as the folks who got angry when Halo was announced for PC. Get outta here with your superiority complex and let people play the games they want.
