Overwatch teases LEGO crossover with half a dozen minifigs, animated short coming tomorrow

Blizzard dropped a fun teaser in the middle of Gamescom this week that seems to imply an Overwatch LEGO crossover.

The brief video appears to show the outlines of Widowmaker, Reinhardt, Genji, Soldier 76, Mercy, and McCree as LEGO minifigs. It’s not clear whether that means only minifigs are happening, or maybe it’s a whole line of LEGO sets based on the game’s maps. Some folks are speculating that it’s a whole crossover game or video series.

(Interestingly, the tease spawned a side discussion on Reddit about the game’s demographics. How young do you think the Overwatch player ages skew, and would you – do you – let your little kid play? And does it matter, since LEGOs are ageless?)

In other Overwatch news, Blizzard is teasing a new animated short tomorrow at the crack of dawn: 6 a.m. EDT in conjunction with the new content reveal at Gamescom in Germany. Stay tuned for that on the game’s official channel.

This better mean we’ll have the possibility for a Lego Overwatch game in the future.

Like I need more Symbra toys.

Oh, wait… I DO!

And yes, Lego went from near bankruptcy to the largest toy company in the world because they licensed hot products and sold them to all ages.

Of course, the cynic in me says they won’t make Sombra… le sigh.
