A long-awaited upgrade to Overwatch 2’s Play of the Game system is finally in development after years of speculation.

Overwatch’s Play of the Game feature has been a staple for the hero shooter since its launch, highlighting the top moment from a match for everyone involved to see.

For years now, players have wanted an upgrade to this feature, suggesting that it should highlight team combos instead of an individual.

Although Blizzard has yet to revamp PoTG, that seems to finally be changing according to Systems Designer Gavin Winter who revealed the team was working on improvements and would like players to help.
