Blizzard announces the Overwatch League

If the Overwatch World Cup is not enough to satisfy the love for e-sport, Blizzard also aims to create the Overwatch League.

The mission statement from the project official website reads:

The Overwatch League is on a mission to celebrate fans and afford them opportunities to become champions through a professional esports ecosystem that embraces passion and rewards excellence.

Millions have answered the call to Overwatch, and the excitement of all those scientists, soldiers, adventurers, and oddities led directly to the creation of a new kind of esports program. Teams will have stability, players will have careers, and fans will have a new set of heroes to take them into the future of Overwatch.

The Overwatch League is set to start in 2017. Below you can watch the official trailer.
