Some players, both on consoles and on PC, are wondering if they need to uninstall the Overwatch Beta from their drives before it gets fully released on May 24th. As we all know, the content players were able to access during the Open Beta is actually the same exact content they will get once the game is launched. However, if you’re wondering whether you’re going to have to uninstall the beta contents, according to Jeff Kaplan, game director at Blizzard Entertainment, that will depend on whether you’re playing on PC, or on consoles.

For PC users: You can keep the beta. Blizzard will patch the full content of the game on launch day.

For Xbox One and PlayStation 4 users: The Open Beta is considered a separate and different product from the full game, so you can go ahead and remove it from the hard drive.

The hype is definitely real on Overwatch! Don’t miss this awesome game as it gets released on May 24, 2016 on PC, Playstation 4, and on Xbox One!
