Overwatch League Partners With Twitch In Two-Year Broadcast Deal
Jan 10, 2018, 00:45
Fifty percent of revenue from the Overwatch League skins will go to a shared pot for the teams. If for some reason you felt inclined to buy every single one of these new skins, it would cost you just shy of $1,200.
A last-minute deal has been struck between the makers of video game Overwatch and streaming site Twitch a day before matches kick off in a newly created league.
The Overwatch League is a big bet for Blizzard/Activision, which has gone all-in to promote and support the league for its newest and fastest growing title (that fastest growing medal may be a function of the game's novelty, or a function of the incredible spread of gaming since the launch of Overwatch in 2014 and the company's last completely new game launch ... in the 1990s).
Also, like you would expect from the NFL, there is a sort of "fantasy football" for the Overwatch League. All players have received 100 free OverwatchLeague tokens, which are the game's new currency system specifically for the new skins.
Aside from the hundreds of new skins added to Overwatch, a slew of minor bugfixes have been pushed to the game.
With the exception of China, Twitch will be the exclusive worldwide third-party provider for Overwatch League regular-season, playoffs, and championship matches, with streams in English, Korean, and French. Here are a list of the teams (and their owners) who have paid a reported $20 million dollars for rights to participate in the new league.
