Patch notes concern


#1

It normally says “Overwatch PTR Patch Notes”. but this current one says “Overwatch Retail Patch notes”. Retail as opposed to…? Thoughts anyone…?


#2

Good catch

I usually don’t focus much on the title, but rather it’s content.

I have no idea why it is called Retail instead of PTR.


#3

Might be a little hickup on their end. People are not perfect and its people who type out those texts.

True :slight_smile: I’ve just heard some rumor that they might go free to play, so I was thinking that they might have a retail patch and a free to play patch?

Dont worry, i dont expect anyone to be perfect :slight_smile: just concerned, if there is a “retail” patch, what stops them from making a “free” patch


#5

Maybe. However I dont think it would happen so soon to the game dropping to 20$


#6

Might mean all is going to go live exactly as is, with them already finalized everything + sent off to the console makers.


#7

I dont care about the content of the patch, im talking about the new label of “Retail” as opposed to just “PTR” :slight_smile:


#8

Yeah, that is what I was aiming at. The would have named it that way because it is a patch they have pushed to retail already. If they intended to test out it out it would have been called a PTR patch.

Sony and MS will be approving this retail patch for this with a release in about two weeks. Once Sony and MS approve it, it will be PC released.


#9

so for the past two years ive just never noticed it labeled as retail?


#10

Could be he used a mobile device and used some autosuggest word.


#11

I cant imagine blizzard is making their big forum posts using mobile… :smiley: but it is a theory! :slight_smile:


#12

The live version and PTR version are often called the Retail Client and Public Test Client. Have a look at the patch notes, the live version is always titled " Overwatch Retail Patch Notes".

They’ve just mixed up the labels, nothing to panic about.
