Overwatch became quite popular, One of the reason for that is it roster of characters many of whom got their very own Pixar-style animated shorts. But being this popular and not a single movie means a step back. right?
Not anymore as it turned out Activision Blizzard, Consumer products division boss Tim Kilpin tells MCV that an Overwatch movie, “we would like that very much.”
Conclusive announcement we know, but since Activision is expanding it franchise beyond Video games with a Call of Duty film and a cinematic universe in development, Kilpin says “if it’s done well it has the opportunity to expand the base audience, beyond the traditional foundation that the game appeals to.”
Between animated shorts, comics and extensive fan art communities make the appeal beyond game is something Overwatch already has. Even a movie like Warcraft managed to redeem itself in Chinese box offices.
Let’s just hope they end up approving the project and make it good.
