The video on the article won’t load (at least for me). It’s just a black screen. Let me see Hanzo wall running dammit!

Dear Devs
You already know this, I’m sure, but never forget: people criticise and b**** about this game because they LOVE it. I personally think you’ve squandered lightning in a bottle. Not being shady, I love this game and want it to be better for us all. You’ve created something dreamlike here.

It’s been quite a ride ngl.
Four years, ups and downs. Still out there enjoying your passionate work.

After dropping World of warcraft this has been my second passion for the last three years and I don’t want to miss out a single day.

Even though times were rough sometimes.

To me it’s an awesome piece of work I am still enjoying until this day.

Thank you for that and the memories.

Long ago, when the universe first emerged from the primordial void and the elements of creation had yet to divide and settle into their shapes… Hanzo and Lucio were one.

I look forward to the followup article in 4-5 years “Dev memories of Overwatch 2”

The ride has been an eventful one, certainly. When you guys were hyping up this new setting, the first new Blizzard IP in years, it was a masterful campaign. I was onboard from the get-go. I loved the story and the designs, and everything was executed with enough gusto to really make it all work.

A bright cyberpunk superhero universe (that I think could use a little more “super”) is just a fun setting. And then you delivered on the hype with an absolute masterclass in character appeal, fun and frenetic gameplay, and hints of that old Blizzard flair.

Those of us who are still here, even if we complain sometimes, are here because we’ve seen the greatness at the core of this whole thing and we want more!

Cheers, loves. The world could always use more heroes!

Such an amazing game that still holds up and excels after 4 entire years. Congrats to the Overwatch team. And the end of that article- with Jeff talking about the moments leading up to the announcement combined with the video he took- I could even feel butterflies in my stomach and I wasn’t even there. Can’t imagine what it must feel like to work on something so secret for so long and then announce it to millions. Really sweet moment. Congrats again guys!
