Game Bits: Overwatch League Is Not Taking A Break, EA Sports Plans Madden Championship Series In 2022

No Break Between Seasons For Overwatch League

Overwatch League VP at Blizzard Jon Spector responded almost immediately to a GGRecon story about the Overwatch League taking a “year-long break” between seasons 4 and 5.
A report citing sources inside the OWL teams said Activision Blizzard told them that the “year-long” hiatus was caused by a delay of Overwatch 2, which the company plans to switch to for season five.
Spector slammed the story on Twitter, saying it was inaccurate.
“It’s really not practical to respond to every rumor about our future plans, but in this case this story is incorrect,” Spector wrote. “We have not set or communicated dates for our 2022 season yet, but we do not intend to take a ‘year-long hiatus’ in any scenario we are considering at this time.”
A spokesperson for Activision Blizzard pointed to Spector’s tweet and offered no additional comments.
The SBJ reached out to multiple owners regarding the report article, and one owner, who asked not to be named, concurred with Spector’s assessment, saying, “That story is garbage, kinda sad how little it was vetted.”
