Blizzard may not be one of the most prolific developers, however, they are one of the most successful. Franchises like Warcraft, Starcraft, Hearthstone, Diablo, and Overwatch are among the best and highest grossing in their respective genres. At Blizzcon, which took place over the weekend, it was announced that Overwatch will be receiving some influence from Blizzard’s other franchises in the form of new skins and a map.
Widowmaker will be receiving Nova, one of two Starcraft inspired skins, the other being the Immortal skin for Orisa. Roadhog will get the Butcher skin and Zarya the Barbarian skin, both inspired by Diablo. Warcraft gets in on the action with the Magni Bronzebeard skin for Torbjörn and Blackhand skin for Doomfist.
They also announced a new theme park-inspired map called Blizzard World. Check out the trailer below –
