Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan has revealed the most popular Workshop modes.

The Workshop is a scripting system that harnesses the power of some of Blizzard’s own tools to give players a huge amount of control while creating new game modes.

The Workshop was first released to the Public Test Realm (PTR) on April 24, and after over three weeks of testing, feedback, and updates, was at last released to the live servers on May 21, giving all players access to the feature.

Despite coming as a complete surprise to most Overwatch players, with such a feature not having been highly-requested, the Workshop has proven an immediate hit.

The Workshop has proven a massive hit with Overwatch players.

Players have used the Workshop to create all manner of game modes, from recreations of other classic game types like a CS:GO-style bomb defuse, to coming up with their own unique modes, and even developing practice tools for improving at Overwatch itself.

Kaplan took to the Overwatch forums to reveal which modes have been most popular so far.

“Wow, the response to the Workshop has been overwhelming. You all are creating some amazing content! We just got some stats that I figured you’d all be interested in. Thanks so much for all of this great content!”
