Blizzard-Activision, makers of huge games like Call of Duty and World of Warcraft, just announced the formation of the “Overwatch League” this week. They plan to form professional teams in cities across the US to play “Overwatch”. This decision comes after lots of success in E-Sports with games like “Starcraft 2,” “Heroes of the Storm,” and “Hearthstone.”
Blizzard-Activision already makes money sponsoring professional matches, but by offering better pay and benefits to gamers, they’re turning a fun hobby into a professional sport.
