Blizzard has a lot of games under its belt and they’ve pretty much covered the entire gaming genre.
The gaming company has just recently joined the FPS gaming niche after releasing Overwatch; a highly competitive first-person shooting game that puts an emphasis in team play.
Their other game, Heroes of the Storm, is also quite enjoyable and this is Blizzard’s foray into the world of MOBA games.
In a world where Dota 2 and League of Legends reigned supreme, Blizzard’s Heroes of the Storm is also slowly garnering attention in the eSports scene.
For those of you who do not know, Heroes of the Storm pits some of Blizzard’s well-known heroes into a battle arena (much like Dota 2).
Now, Overwatch’s iconic character and poster child, Tracer, is already in the Heroes of the Storm roster. But, because of Overwatch’s tremendous success, more Overwatch heroes will be incorporated into the game in future updates.
According to the lead hero designed, Kent-Erik Hagman, he said that because of Tracer’s popularity and appeal, they are now looking to add more Overwatch heroes.
He wants to add more Overwatch heroes because of the fans’ positive reception to Tracer. Not only was Tracer well-received, she is also one of the best tournament heroes in the current roster.
It is still unknown which Overwatch characters will join Heroes of the Storm since there are a lot of compelling characters in Overwatch’s roster.
The gaming company might put a poll in the user forums to see which Overwatch hero the fans want to see in the Heroes of the Storm.
Personally, I would love Roadhog and Mercy to join the fray. Imagine Roadhog pulling enemies in while also doing massive amounts of damage when up close and personal with his enemies.
Mercy can also revive enemy heroes but this can be risky, especially in tournaments. Well, there is also the possibility of adding another Specialist character in the form of Torbjorn. Or, Reinhardt can also be appealing since he can put up his shield and protect his allies from taking damage for a set period of time.
There literally is a ton of options for Blizzard to incorporate Overwatch heroes into their MOBA game.
But, they have to make sure of it first as adding new heroes might change the current meta of the game.
For example, Tracer is one of the best tournament heroes these days but it can change when there are more Overwatch heroes introduced in the game.
Still, I am quite happy that the Heroes of the Storm Lead Designer is looking into adding more Overwatch characters.
I truly enjoyed playing Overwatch and I am already a big fan of the game. And I also love the fact that the gaming company always listens to its fans, getting feedback, and applying new features and fixes along the way.
Overwatch is Blizzard’s first-person shooting game and is available for the PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4. Heroes of the Storm is Blizzard’s MOBA game and is available only on the PC.
