I’ve been very vocal about how much I personally love Overwatch. Ever since the game launched last year, I have been hooked on playing this game. I can sincerely say that Overwatch has succeeded in keeping itself fresh and relevant.

Stay tuned as we’ll keep you posted on any updates on the Overwatch Anniversary!
