Overwatch This episode 48: the countdown to BlizzCon 2017


BlizzCon is less than six weeks away – can you believe it? It seems like E3 was only yesterday. The next big Overwatch announcement is likeliest to come at Blizzard’s big November bash, but what else might we have to look forward to between now and then?

With the Overwatch League still planned to launch this year, here’s the latest on big blue’s ambitious new esport.

Rich and our resident Blizzard wizard Ben Barrett discuss exactly that on the latest episode of Overwatch This. Confident predictions include the next patch – version 1.16 – and the Halloween event. As for BlizzCon itself, could we expect a new hero? Hear why Ben reckons not.

Also, as this is Episode 48, our weekly Overwatch show will turn one year old before BlizzCon opens its doors. That’s every bit as good as a new hero, we’re sure you’ll agree.
