The Blizzard Community and Overwatch Community have been very active and vocal about what improvements and changes they would like to see happen with the game. The Devs over at Blizzard are listening and have responded with their own Developer Updates.
The first concerns was regarding the Overwatch post launch questions like new content. They do have additional maps and heroes that they will want to update after launch. They have decided that all new maps and heroes after the game launches will be added for free and not as a paid DLC. Some minor topics are also discussed like a request to turn off the music in game. I wasn't aware they they didn't have this option already in the game, but Jeff the Game Director on Overwatch gives a really good explanation of why this is. He goes on to add that they will add a music volume slider to be able to lower or turn off the in game music. These and other other topics are discussed in the very informative update below.
Take a look and let us know what you think of the popular community questions and what questions would you have for the Overwatch team?
