I downloaded Overwatch on my PS4 during the last Free Weekend, and the game itself has not been moved or deleted.

Now that I have the Origins Edition on a Blu Ray, what is going to happen with the existing data? Specifically:

  • Are the existing updates valid for the disc? Or I have to download the 20 GB update again? (I remember that some PS3 games had different updates and savedata for Digital and Physical copies)
  • Is the game still launched from the disc?
  • Is there any real difference between both copies/installs?

Digital and Disc are two different versions. Save data work if you have the same region between digital and copy disc. Also, you can have 1 version of the game installed (digital OR disc copy).

From my experience, you will need to reinstall and download the data.

    Bear in mind, "save data" for Overwatch is really only settings as your game inventory (skins, etc...) are stored on Blizzard's servers.

  • you are correct(my mistake not mention it). Everything is server side your personal settings etc and when you switch you just get those config's local.
