Blizzcon – Overwatch Canceled
November 7, 2015 8:00 pm
In a shocking twist this evening, Blizzard Entertainment has canceled their upcoming project, Overwatch. The reason: they just didn’t feel it could live up to the hype.
A media consultant for the studio went on the record with this statement in an email:
“We were looking at the numbers, specifically view and subscription counts on the gameplay videos and trailers that we have released so far, and these number are absolutely off the charts. People are so excited about this game, and we just don’t think we can live up to that promise. We’ve decided it’s in the best interests of all parties to just cancel the concept before this gets too far out of hand. It’s such a shame, really. We would like to release it, but maybe we’ll try again when people are less interested.”
