Blizzard Entertainment

Blizzard Entertainment is a 30-years old video game company that has created four major video games franchises: Warcraft, StarCraft, Diablo, and Overwatch. Their longest-running MMORPG World of Warcraft was released back in 2004 and is still played globally. The game rivals Riot Games’s created League of Legends. Other than that, Blizzard Entertainment’s Overwatch game featuring intense close-combat skill-based battles is the best addition to the online multiplayer genre. Overwatch also won the Game of The Year 2016 award. Arguably, many players shifted from CSGO to Overwatch after its release, and the game, in a way, de-throned CSGO from leading the online team-based title. Still, games like Ubiosft’s Rainbow Six Siege and Bungie’s Destiny 2 still directly compete with Overwatch. Regardless of the rivalry, Overwatch is a different beast.
