In the past months, a lot of speculation has been going on around the Overwatch League but more specifically with regards to how many organizations have made the choice to back out of Overwatch.
It all started following a report that the New England Patriots and the Miami Dolphins bought slots into the Overwatch League for an amount reaching six figures. Thus, the trend was set by Denial eSports, as they released their roster shortly after.
They were closely followed by multiple other organizations as Team SoloMid, CompLexity, Dignitas and Red Reserve.
Many rumours revolving this development in the scene have caused major doubts for both players and organizations. With many thinking there might not be a scene to get into by the time the Overwatch League launches.
However, the recent launch of the Overwatch Contenders and the Overwatch Open Division have given players new hope as a scene is actually developing, with decent prizes at stake. The Overwatch Contenders playoffs bolster a $50,000 prize per region.
This however didn’t stop organization’s doubt in the scene, as last week found two new victims as Ninjas in Pajamas dropped their roster and Cyclowns disbanded their team.
Further updates are expected in the coming months as to what will happen in the Overwatch League together with the Overwatch World Cup kicking off on July 14th in Shanghai.
Keep tuning in for the action, and stay posted as we keep you updated with the most recent developments.
