Jeff Kaplan, the Game Director of Blizzard’s Overwatch has stated on the forum’s message board that he doesn’t want gamers playing Overwatch using a keyboard and mouse on consoles.
He has specifically stated that the team is working with console manufacturers and provided them with two solutions which he believes will make the game a more even playing field.
The full statement is below:
“The Overwatch team objects to the use of mouse and keyboard on console.
We have contacted both first-party console manufacturers and expressed our concern about the use of mouse and keyboard and input conversion devices.
We have lobbied and will continue to lobby for first-party console manufacturers to either:
Disallow mouse and keyboard and input conversion devices
Openly and easily support mouse and keyboard for ALL players
I encourage you to reach out to the hardware manufacturers and express your concerns (but please do so in a productive and respectful way).”
