From the Death of Titan to the Birth of Overwatch: A 3-Part Video Series

Comments

Go in-depth with our Overwatch video series, straight from the development team at Blizzard.

Overwatch, Blizzard's first new IP in over seventeen years, is finally set to launch next month. And while the game's closed beta will soon come to a close, you can get an insider's look at the game's development in our video series below.

GameSpot's Danny O'Dwyer headed down to the developer's headquarters to talk with Overwatch's key development leads for our three-part Overwatch series. While the game has its roots in the canceled MMO Titan, Overwatch has grown into something entirely different. Part one deals with the death of Titan and the birth of Overwatch. Part two delves into Overwatch's roots in classic '90s shooters. And the final segment deals with the history and origins of the game's 21 heroes.

For the videos, we had conducted many more hours of interviews than we were actually able to use. If you want a behind-the-scenes deep dive, check out:

Part 1: The Fall of Titan

Danny talks to the Overwatch team about what happened with Blizzard's cancelled MMO Titan, and how its death led to the birth of Overwatch.
