Overwatch Has No Clear DLC Plans Yet
Blizzard revealed that Overwatch is going to be a premium title, despite suspicions that the game would be free-to-play in the build-up to the beta.
Players expected that the game would be funded similarly to League of Legends, which sells characters for premium currency. Blizzard, however, won’t be launching Overwatch with a hero store — and haven’t yet decided whether to sell characters at all yet.

Speaking to Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan, PC Gamer reported that the developer has no definitive plans for the game’s content post-launch and their silence on the matter certainly isn’t a case of them withholding information.
“We’re not sure if and when and how we’re going to add new heroes to the game at all,” he said.
“I think there was a misconception that went around early on there would be a ‘hero store’ with other heroes for sale at launch also, and that just couldn’t be further from the truth.”
“There was also a misconception that we would be selling maps, and we’ve never had any intention of selling maps.”
The game will probably have skins available for the existing characters, as skins are available for players who pre-order the game.
