The latest Assault map is now available to play on all platforms.
Overwatch’s latest map – Paris – has left its testing phase on the PTR and is now live in the game across all modes, and across all platforms too.
The news of the map’s full release was confirmed in a tweet from the official Overwatch account yesterday evening:

Paris is an assault map that requires the attacking team to capture two points, and is packed with branching pathways that afford many different strategies for taking each point. Have a look at our Paris guide for more insight into playing on the map.
Thematically, Paris was a site of severe unrest during the Omnic Crisis, and was also a heist location for Junkrat and Roadhog.
Paris didn’t quite arrive in time for the start of the Overwatch League last week, although we’d be very surprised if it didn’t show up in the map rotation once the action gets under way again this Thursday.
