How do you determine when does it work and when doesn't it?

Because this is a team based game with each character made for a specific role. Fighting games work with out of franchise characters but not a fps.?


Even if they pick guest characters who could easily fit into the tank, support or damage category? Btw, you probably have a point with this game having only it’s own original characters so that it can flesh out it’s own identy. Maybe in the next few years If they make Overwatch 2, they can add some guests.

Guest characters in Overwatch is a terrible idea. Why would Blizzard bother to license properties when they can just create their own new characters?

Not everything is Smash or Mortal Kombat, jesus.

Could Overwatch characters at least guest star in other properties?

But would let’s say Genji at least make a good guest in Soul Calibur?

I mean sure? I think crossovers in general are pointless and dumb but I guess that could work?

They’ve already crossed over with other Blizzard properties in Heroes of the Storm anyway.

Not just Overwatch, but any crossovers. Fighting games have been doing it for quite some while now, so why not other genres?
