Overwatch 2, the highly anticipated sequel from Activision Blizzard, is slated to become a part of the Ubisoft+ multi-access subscription.
The gaming world is no stranger to seismic shifts, and the union of Overwatch 2 and Ubisoft+ stands as a testament to this evolution. Microsoft’s ambitious $68.7 billion bid to acquire the cloud-gaming rights of Activision Blizzard has undergone a strategic overhaul, aligning itself with the regulatory norms set by the UK Competition and Markets Authority (CMA). In a notable twist, this transformation relinquishes Microsoft’s exclusive control over licensing Activision Blizzard titles on Xbox Cloud Gaming, ushering in Ubisoft’s entrance into the arena.
Under the revised framework, Ubisoft emerges as a key player in the distribution of Activision Blizzard’s gaming portfolio. This expanded scope means that not only will Ubisoft have the privilege to feature acclaimed titles like Call of Duty, but also the highly anticipated Overwatch 2 on its exclusive cloud gaming subscription platform, Ubisoft+. This arrangement fosters a more dynamic gaming landscape where Ubisoft+ can flourish as a hub for diverse gaming experiences.
As the dust settles and the gaming world braces for a transformative shift, gamers worldwide can mark October 18, 2023, as a milestone date. Alongside this blockbuster addition, other beloved titles such as Call of Duty Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2 will seamlessly integrate into the subscription service. This fusion opens the gateway for a wider gaming community to experience these titles across various operating systems, transcending the limitations of the Windows platform.
The impending inclusion of Overwatch 2 and its peers ushers in a new pricing of $17.99 per month for the Ubisoft+ Multi Access subscription. Beyond the allure of Activision Blizzard titles, subscribers gain access to Ubisoft’s prestigious catalog, encompassing iconic franchises like Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, Watchdogs, and Tom Clancy’s The Division.
This enriched offering extends to premium editions and downloadable content (DLCs) that amplify the gaming journey. While we’re all hyped up for Overwatch 2’s grand entrance on Ubisoft+, let’s remember that transitions can sometimes come with a few bumps. Glitches, errors, and bugs may emerge as cloud-streaming rights transition. Yeah, let’s hope for a smoother ride this time, but stay vigilant.
