Since the announcement of Overwatch, fans have wondered if Blizzard’s team-based FPS has what it takes to make it at the competitive level. I’m one of them. While it’s currently small, the Overwatch esports scene exists—and I can definitely see it growing. To find out if the pros feel the same way, I spoke to one of Overwatch’s early esports adopters.
I see, for the first time in a long time, an exciting new shooter that won’t be worried about a dwindling player base in 6 months’ time,” says War Spirit (@WaRSPiRiTUK), captain of Team SiTH. The game already has the competitive shooter players excited and playing. As with all games from Blizzard, I expect great support for the game.”
