I played some Overwatch on a ultrawide screen, but this game dont have true 21:9 aspect support, its 21:9 is a vertically cut 16:9 so it doesnt give you a wider FOV.
My impressions may be mostly negative because of that. Anyway, currently I think the wider you go, the harder you get any benefit not in static view case, but in action. VR headsets are also not going ultrawide.

Well, you can get an idea yourself by adding a custom resolution. On a 1440p display, you'd add 2560x1080. On a 1080p, you'd do something like 1920x824. In your driver control panel, you then select GPU upscaling and "keep aspect ratio".
