The future of the Overwatch League remains unclear
Blizzard released a brief statement after the 2023 Overwatch League Season came to an end. The company knows that fans are worried about what will happen to the league in the future, so it promised to continue investing in esports.
“With the conclusion of the 2023 Overwatch League Season, we will focus on building our vision of a revitalized esports program. We look forward to sharing more with you as details are finalized,” the company wrote.
The statement made part of the community more concerned, as it sounds like a kind of farewell to the Overwatch League. The league’s teams are expected to vote soon to reach a new operating agreement. From this, Blizzard will make a decision for the future of the competition.
“If teams do not vote to continue under an updated operating agreement, a termination fee of $6 million will be paid to each participating team entity (total fee of approximately $114 million),” the company explained in July.
As is evident, if an agreement is not reached, the Overwatch League would be at latent risk of disappearing. League commissioner Sean Miller previously stated that he was confident that a resolution would be reached that would benefit everyone, but for now there is no update on the issue.
