Overwatch League Keeps Expanding

Pro-gaming took one more step toward sports dominance this week with the unveiling of the first league of city-based professional teams. The Overwatch League unveiled teams this morning based in Boston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Orlando, San Francisco, Seoul, South Korea and Shanghai, China. With more than 30 million players and a growing, passionate fan base, the Blizzard Entertainment-developed hero shooter didn’t seem to struggle finding monied backers for the official teams. Overwatch is the fastest game to reach the 30 million player count among Blizzard’s stable of twenty number one games over the past decade. Other popular Blizzard titles include World of Warcraft, Hearthstone and Diablo.
