Blizzard Studio is planning to support local servers in the future Overwatch shooting game, and recently a local server has been added in Bahrain available through the Public Test Region system.
Since the PTR feature only includes competitive games at the moment, players can try the server by creating a custom match and choosing Bahrain server under the “Data Center” tab. It gave us the opportunity to try a custom match and the connection hovered around 25ms-30ms with stable performance. Of course, it remains to be seen how the system will work when the server is available for all game modes and all games.
There is currently no information on when the server will be available in the main game. In a statement to IGN ME, Blizzard said it is currently testing servers in different locations and has not fully committed to launching regional game servers until now.
