The Overwatch World Cup Returns In 2023

36 teams, 1 champion

The Overwatch World Cup is back! After a generous hiatus since 2019 (with all manner of reasons to justify doing so) we will see Overwatch 2 return to an ancient eSports question: Who has the skills.

Spanning our entire earth, the Cup will see over 36 countries and regions competing to see precisely where the undisputed talent lies across the globe:

Blizzard wastes no time in setting expectations, explaining that:

“The competition will be bigger than ever: new game, new players, and new ways of spotlighting your country and region on a global scale.”

A timeline has also been shared to show how the journey to the championship looks, with things kicking off in January:

Considering how much Blizzard eSports has been sat on the backburner for the last few years, it’s promising to see a competitive scene getting this kind of push. If you are a Diamond rank Overwatch player, your time may be coming up – I sure won’t be playing with you, but I’ll be keen to cheer you on. Let’s go Australia!
