Blizzard has come forward to speak out against the use of mouse and keyboard controls when playing its popular team-based shooter, Overwatch on console.
“The Overwatch team objects to the use of mouse and keyboard on console,” Overwatch game director and Blizzard VP Jeff Kaplan said in a post on the game’s official forums.
Kaplan went on to note that the studio has already reached out to Microsoft and Sony and “expressed
concern” with players using “input conversion devices” to enable mouse and keyboard play on Xbox One and PS4.
“We have lobbied and will continue to lobby for first-party console manufacturers to either: Disallow mouse and keyboard and input conversion devices or openly and easily support mouse and keyboard for ALL players,” he added.
