In a recent AMA on Reddit, game director Aaron Keller revealed that “near the top of the priority list” of the developers of Overwatch 2 there is to introduce a system based on guildswhich among other things is also one of the most frequent requests from the Blizzard shooter community.
“We are looking to add more social systems to Overwatch 2 and a guild system is almost at the top of the list for us,” Keller said during the back-and-forth with fans, also confirming that the Blizzard team is actively working on this front. , but that it is still too early to say exactly when they will be introduced,
Considering the importance of team play and roles in Blizzard’s shooter, a guild system could actually prove to be a very welcome feature for players who struggle to find other users to play competitive matches with or simply avoid the matchmaking lottery.
Keller however got his hands on stating that the introduction of guilds in Overwatch 2 represents a big change and that the work on this feature is also involving “several other Blizzard departments”, a sign that it may not arrive any time soon.
