They do this because its to easy when you have offline modes for hackers to develop special patches that let people who never bought the game to play it offline.
An update to the Play Station 3 system software was released on 1st November 2016.
Also in a way, this feels like it's not worth that (Origins edition, or maybe even if you just bought the regular Overwatch) to be able to play it only when an internet connection is available. almost every game for the last 2 years that released require an internet connexion to play.

There's more than one DOOM game, and many of the older ones are free. There's no reason to not allow offline play of overwatch, some people might not have the cash to keep up internet, or might not be as tech savvy.

Yifan Lu and team molecule had warned that PSN access on HENkaku would be short lived, and it seems today’s the day you lose PSN access if you are using the popular hack.

The issue impacts both HENkaku and Tai HENkaku users, and will most likely not be fixed anytime soon: The firmware spoofing on the exploit was using the fact that firmwares 3.60 and 3.61 used the same token to identify themselves to the PSN, and Sony had not disabled access to 3.61 users, yet. Loss of PSN access is not the end of the world as a user of the popular PS Vita hack, but it could make a few things harder.
