Thanks to everyone that has been participating in our Role Queue Beta Season! We’ve been reading all your feedback and we look forward to officially launching Role Queue to Competitive Play and Quick Play soon.
As you may have read previously, we’ve been planning to enable Role Queue for Competitive Play and Quick Play simultaneously. However, Role Queue is a huge change to Overwatch gameplay and we want to ensure a smooth launch for both Competitive and Quick Play. To this end, we’ve decided to separate the launch times and delay Role Queue for Quick Play until September 3rd at 11:00 PST. This will allow us to fully support and respond to any issues that may arise for both Competitive Play and Quick Play.
Please reference below for Role Queue official launch times:
Competitive Play: August 31st @ 5PM PST (September 1st 00:00 UTC)
Quick Play: September 3rd @ 11AM PST
Quick Play Classic (Arcade Card): September 3rd @ 11AM PST
Thank you again for your patience and feedback!
