Console reporting on Overwatch coming with next update

Blizzard will reveal a new Overwatch map and an animated short next week at gamescom

Don't fret if you're not able to make the event in person, Blizzard plans to livestream their conference and the new animated short. The event takes place on Wednesday, 23rd August 2017, at 6PM local time, so mark your calendars.

Our full schedule of activities is now available on http://gamescom.blizzard.com, and you'll find an overview of each game below. The game developer has also a scheduled activity in the Gamescom where it will reveal a new map along with a new animated short.

Members of the German Overwatch World Cup team will be doing an on-stage panel on Saturday.

During gamescom 2017, Hearthstone players will get an early look at new Fireside Gathering features such as a Fireside Brawl with a group raid against the Lich King.

An Overwatch report system will finally be available on the console version, and it's happening in the next live patch.

If we were to place bets, we'd stick our money on the chance that Blizzard will announce a new expansion for World Of Warcraft, seeing as how Blizzard revealed Legion at Gamescom in 2015 at this very event.

Heroes of the Storm: Showdown will be a live show including fights between community personalities and pros.

A new hero for Heroes of the Storm will be playable, and more details will be revealed on the character in the preview video coming on Monday.

StarCraft is another game where we'll expect an update, this time shining some light on the latest StarCraft II co-op commander. All of the big companies are prepping their major announcements and gaming mogul Blizzard is no different.

In addition, gamescom attendees can pick up a selection of Blizzard merchandise, including some brand-new and convention-exclusive items, at the Blizzard store in Hall 5. Last month's update also detailed the console report system was in the works, and that has now materialized.
