Overwatch is getting a 4K upgrade for the Xbox One X

Overwatch Xbox One X 4K Enhancements Confirmed By Blizzard

Blizzard Entertainment is apparently taking advantage of the Xbox One X's increased processing power to add some Overwatch Xbox One X enhancements, which will help to get the game into a better 4K resolution.

Blizzard confirmed this during an interview with Windows Central.

Until now, word on Overwatch's Xbox One X enhancements has been relatively quiet, though it certainly seemed like a likely result given how popular the team-based game has been so far. If you happen to be one of these people and also recently purchased an Xbox One X, you'll be happy to hear that Blizzard has officially confirmed that the game will be receiving enhancements to take advantage of the system's power. Blizzard has promised to share more information about its Overwatch Xbox One X enhancement plans later.

Destiny 2 is receiving 4K support for Xbox One X next month-but support for Overwatch could be coming soon, too. Blizzard seems to have more plans for the console beyond that, but they're weighing concerns like the user interface against their additional plans for the Xbox One X.

Then again, Blizzard may opt to release the Xbox One X update separately, considering the sheer size some of the updates have been.

Overwatch received PlayStation 4 support before this but strangely the 4K update turned to be only for the User Interface (UI) of the game not game play and the actual in-game resolution stayed at 1080P alnog with updates and improvements in Depth of Field (DoF) and Anisotropic Filtering (AF). If Blizzard can also implement HDR at some point down the line, Overwatch will look stunning on Xbox One X with its vibrant and vivid colors.
