As of now, Overwatch gamers are gearing up for the Year of the Rooster event, but that doesn't mean that there are other issues in the game that have not been touched. A fan had gone on the Battle Net forums to voice out some console-related concerns, and game director Jeff Kaplan was quick to address these issues.

In the Battle Net forum, a console gamer had pointed out three key issues on the game. The first issue was about the damage being dealt by Torbjorn and Symmetra's turrets, the second one was about the console version not having a reporting feature, and the third one was about some missing voice lines in the console like, "I need healing," and, "_____ wants to attack/defend the objective."

Kaplan had commented on all three concerns, saying that the developers are well aware of the issues, and they're doing what they can to fix the issues. As of now, the team is closely watching Symmetra and Torbjorn and there have been considerations on adjusting them. The voice line issue was also met with a simple, "We'll work on this," from Kaplan.

As for the reporting feature, Kaplan has confirmed that it will be coming to the PS4 and Xbox One, but there is currently no solid release date since "there are many moving parts to make this happen." Hopefully, the feature will be available before summer or even sooner. As of now, Kaplan says that the delay is because of things that are beyond the control of the team.

Though Overwatch is incredibly popular, the game is still in need of a lot of updates and tweaks. Reports are even going around that there will be a feature available soon that will allow players to save their highlights. It will only be a matter of time before these upgrades find their way to the game.

Overwatch is now available for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and the Chinese New Year event is said to go live today.
