I'd really enjoy the feature to make custom games open to the public, like a server browser. We could make our own Brawls with the custom settings, YouTubers and streamers could easily play with their followers, and people could easily host their own tournaments if we could require a password to join the server.

At the very least, we could play with 60 tick servers without having to get 11 friends together to play one session.

We're very interested in the concept of enabling players to make custom games open to the public. We have time scheduled to explore this and we're pretty excited about it.

Are you insterested by an Overwatch Map Builder/Editor when your server browser came out?


Yes. We would love to make more of our tools available to the community. Our main issue has been that we made a brand new engine for OW. The tools and tech are not in a state where it is easy to make them public-facing. We keep talking about ways to get a roadmap to get us there someday. Both our design and tools team are very invested in trying to make this happen someday. But this concept would not happen anytime soon.


Overwatch now features a Games Browser which lists all publicly available custom games made by other users.

There is still currently no timetable for a map editor in Overwatch.
