According to a recent interview with Eurogamer the team over at Blizzard currently has no plans to add cross-save to Overwatch. When asked about if they plan on adding the much demanded feature to Overwatch anytime soon they said the following.

Cross-play and cross-progression are something we’ve learned a lot about in the last couple of years, particularly looking at our other game Hearthstone, which has multiplatform support. We don’t have anything specific to talk about today, other than say there are business and technical challenges to getting all that to work correctly. Our focus really has been just trying to get Overwatch on the Nintendo Switch so we can have all new ways to play and welcome the Nintendo community into the Overwatch community.

This means those who have racked up their time on other platforms and wanted to bring their skins and other items to the Nintendo Switch will have to start a new file. But when asked if they have any plans to add the feature in the future they had this to say.

Yeah, I mean this is something we’ve talked about, the industry’s been evolving on this in the last couple of years and we’ve been actively monitoring and paying attention to what’s been going on, we’re just not in a place yet from a technical or a business side that we can make any sort of commitment on that front.
