Overwatch League to be broadcast on Twitch.tv in two-year deal

10 January 2018

The two-year deal begins with the first match of the new league on Wednesday.

Fifty percent of the revenue from the sale of Overwatch League team skins, like other team merchandise, will go into a "net shared revenue pool" for all twelve Overwatch League teams.

No matter the reason, Twitch's Overwatch deal is another step on the road to ensuring that Activision's new league hits the ground running.

First-round results of the election in March will be announced on 2 April and, in the event of a run-off, on 1 May. Egypt's 2018 presidential elections will kick off on March 26, National Electoral Commission announced on Monday.

Overwatch League skins & sprays are now available in the game according to patch notes posted on the game's official forums.

For those wondering, that's a new skin for all 26 Overwatch heroes for each of the 12 Overwatch League teams. The plan behind the new currency is to essentially perform an extra stream of income for the competitors - no details have been given regarding the currency but we know that Blizzard will be taking a portion. The Overwatch League in-game menu isn't just for staring at the shiny new skins - players can watch the games via this menu when they're live.

Anyone hoping to get their hands on a League skin for their favorite team and character will be able to do so without actually buying any League tokens.

Just in time for the commencement of the Overwatch League, Blizzard and Twitch have partnered up to bring every match to the popular streaming service.

Future seasons of the league, although now not specified as to when, will move to arenas in the home cities of each team. Exactly what time they'll go live on January 10 remains to be seen, but we'll make sure we update this post as soon as we spot them go live. This two-year deal, which encompasses the entirety of the league's first two seasons, makes that a reality.

"Our fans love to engage with content on Twitch, and we wanted to drive significant viewership of the Overwatch League in its inaugural season and beyond", said Armin Zerza, COO of Blizzard Entertainment.
