A complete revamp incoming
Overwatch is a competitive game at its core. It’s fast, dynamic, and at its best when two closely matched teams are battling it out for victory.
Blizzard’s goal as a development team is to ensure that all of our players have the opportunity to experience the thrill of competition - From the highs and lows of organized group play to the excitement of watching the world’s best players competing at live events. Esports competitions are vital to any thriving competitive game, and Overwatch 2 is no different. Today, Blizzard is excited to talk about what is next for Overwatch Esports.
Blizzard’s philosophy moving into our next chapter of Overwatch Esports is simple: offer and cultivate an esports ecosystem that is more open - with anyone able to participate - always-on, regionally focused, providing experiences for participants and fans alike. Overwatch 2 is a game for everyone, and we want to ensure that anyone who has the skills is able to showcase them.
