Blizzard is one of the world's biggest video game developers, famous for games like Diablo, World of Warcraft and StarCraft. However one of it's biggest games in the world of Esports, Overwatch is making a lot of headlines these days. Overwatch has been around for 3 years now, and after several major Esports competitions like the Overwatch League, Overwatch Contenders and the Overwatch World Cup it's now one of the most famous shooters ever made.
At Blizzcon 2019 Jeff Kaplan, the VP of Blizzard announced the upcoming release of Overwatch 2 - which will add a lot more story based elements and PvE missions to the title, which previous was almost exclusively PvP. It's an addition which Druid Gaming thinks will bring in even more fans but it also sounds like the expansion of Overwatch will not stop there. Kaplan has recently hinted in an article with Edge Magazine that he would like the Overwatch Universe to extend much further than this.
He would like to see the characters develop further in the form of TV series, Movies and other forms of media. I have to say that I would love to see this myself. Over the past few years Blizzard have released a number of short movies for various characters such as Reinhardt, Soldier 76, Winston and more. These clips provide some really great character insight and a view into the history of the character - and an extension of these into series and movies would be a really great move for the franchise in our opinion.
