Jeff Kaplan is the director of the Game Overwatch. Well, he always has something to share about the game to the Overwatch fans. But lately, they have gone silent and have shared no news related to any updates in the game. To this, Jeff Kaplan replied and opened up about the same. He hinted about Overwatch New Game Modes. Moreover, he also hinted about the Overwatch new features and Overwatch New Engine Tech. Let’s dive into details of it.
Overwatch New Game Modes, Features and Engine Tech
“We’re also in a bit of a head’s down mode trying to get a lot of work done. We also had a few people traveling over the Thanksgiving holiday (we’re based in the US) and took advantage of the slow week to allow developers to work on whatever they wanted. The end result was pretty cool. We explored new game modes, new features, and new engine tech. It was all really rough but some of the prototypes will actually turn into features someday,” Kaplan responded to a post in the forum. It was related to the no response from the developers’ side regarding any updates.

Overwatch New Engine Tech and More…
This seems like the Overwatch Game DEvelopment Team is under a heavy burden. But that’s no surprise as Blizzard have been doing it for quite a long time now. It has been introducing new things, cosmetics, modes in the game. With all this, it is also managing the Overwatch League and is creating new elements in the game.
The next event for the Overwatch game is the Winter Wonderland event which is live in the game now. There are 6 to 7 skins that are a part of this skins. Check the List of the Skins in Winter Wonderland Event. This will be along with the old brawls and snow covered map by Blizzard.
