Previously, Blizzard had stated that the ranked competitive game mode for Overwatch would arrive some time in June.
Competitive play was an implemented feature in the Overwatch Closed Beta, although due to player feedback, Blizzard removed the game mode before the game’s official launch.
Blizzard is currently working on overhauling the ranked game mode in order to offer players a better competitive environment.
