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?)
