Overwatch 2 by Blizzard Entertainment took the world by storm. The sequel to Blizzard’s hero shooter Overwatch provides a new, familiar experience for newcomers and seasoned fans. With the game going through its first season, Blizzard disclosed that more than 25 million people played the title in the first ten days of availability.
However, the game has come under heavy scrutiny for in-game monetization. Many users have said that the in-game premium battle pass needs tweaking.
Furthermore, the skin prices and heroes locked inside battle-pass have also made the player base upset. Monetization in free-to-play games is expected. In the case of Overwatch 2, however, it is poorly done.
Fortunately, it seems Blizzard is listening to the complaints of the fans. Posted on the official Overwatch 2 subreddit, a user says that they received a survey which asks about in-game monetization in the title (via Eurogamer).
“I got an email from Blizzard requesting that I fill out a survey. It heavily touched on topics regarding the Battle Pass and the Overwatch Store,” said user u/FelineXJunkie in the post. “If you haven’t already, be sure to fill it out. I really hope this is the first step towards change.”
Many more commented under the post confirming the survey. However, it seems that Blizzard is not sending it to everyone. One user under the post commented that they got a survey after purchasing the Watchpoint pack. Similarly, as per a report by TheGamer, it seems that the developers are inviting players who haven’t purchased anything in-game to give their views.
The game had an initially rocky start, coming under backlash from the community for the mandatory mobile verification to play the title and the constant server problems.
Overwatch 2 is available to play for free on PC via Battle.net, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and Nintendo Switch.
