Blizzard considers an Overwatch movie

One of the persistent complaints about Overwatch is that for all of the animated shorts, comics, and CGI trailers that Blizzard has released, the story has been in arrested development pretty much since the minute it released. This could all change, however, if Activision Blizzard decides to go ahead with a full-length movie.

Activision’s Tim Kilpin said that an Overwatch movie is something the company “would like very much” and could be “a way to expand the audience and expand the opportunity and then e-sports.”

The prospect of an Overwatch film brings to mind 2016’s Warcraft, which was a critical bomb but a box office success.

As we wait for this to happen (or not), at least we have all of the cinematic trailers compiled together in a convenient video. Check it out below and let us know in the comments if you’d love to see an Overwatch flick on the big screen!

If they can make a film in the quality of the shorts I’m all for it!

Im interested only if its full CIG like their trailers, and only if people behind trailers make this.

Ok. If Blizz hired a movie studio, a real one, handed over lore, vids, and background, and then stepped out and let the movie studio make the film, I would consider it.

That will never, ever happen. So, the answer is:

NO. Please, Don’t!

I’ve seen too many movies based on games that make my ears and my eyes hurt. Don’t make me go to another one… please…

While the Warcraft movie was considered a bomb (What game related movie isn’t?) I liked it because it gives you a look into the Lore of the game. Overwatch being action oriented might do good with a decent storyline.

But that film was terrible in the end. In particular the acting part. Imho, an action movie wasn’t the right choice for a film based on Warcraft lore.

I’d be for this before I saw the piece of utter crap that was the Warcraft movie.

For the love of god don’t make it live action and keep Travis Fimmel as far away from the project as possible

If they have their in house team actually do it up then fine. If they try and have others do it hell no.
