Overwatch content coming to competitive 2 weeks after release

Including new maps and heroes.

While esports is often about the grand competitions at the highest level, there's also plenty of people getting competitive at home at an amateur level, which is why the latest bit of news regarding Overwatch's competitive mode may be of interest for many of you.

Developer Scott Mercer took to the forums today to tell us that as of this week's patch Rialto is now available in competitive, instead of waiting until the next competitive season starting on July 1. What's more interesting though, is the following reveal:

"In the future, our plan is to make new heroes and maps available in competitive play two weeks after their initial release."
