A day before BlizzCon, Blizzard Entertainment trademarked the Overwatch logo.
During the Overwatch panel Q&A, Chris Metzen responded a fan there are plans to give fans some of the Overwatch backstory in some ways.
The logo trademark includes printed matter such as comic books, graphic novels, novels, and other media such as headgear, clothing and footwear.
Looks like we might be hearing soon of new Overwatch merchandise. So far the first one was on sale at BlizzCon online store: the Tracer statue (slated to ship on February 2015).
Blizzard Entertainment updated the Blizzard Careers Page to reflect the BlizzCon 2014 Unveiling of Overwatch, Goblins vs Gnomes, and StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void. Each game now has its own job opening section under the game title.
But that is not all the news behind the new updated page … or better said the Omitted News or lack thereof. Check out below the job posting quote.
So if Overwatch, Hearthstone: Goblins vs Gnomes, and Legacy of the Void were revealed at BlizzCon 2014 — then …
1. Why is there still a “Unannounced Games” job openings list?
2. Even more important and mind-blowing … Why is the Unannounced Job openings titled “Unannounced Games/Projects“? … still in plural.
I had written about this shortly before BlizzCon, and it is very curious and EXCITING that despite the fact that the page was updated and most of the job openings were moved to the new Overwatch job openings section, the Unannounced Games/Projects still exists and in plural.
We know the Next-Gen MMO Titan was cancelled permanently. What else is Blizzard Entertainment cooking in the oven that we still don’t know about, and they are so openly “omitting” yet “flaunting” in plural? … hinting Blizzard is keeping a few cards close to its chest.
Check out the 3D Character Animator description: “Understanding of the Warcraft visual style, and a passion to push it to the next level”. Hrmph? Warcraft IV? WoW X7.0? Something else related to Warcraft? Lot of unanswered questions in this no-news newsly news, eh? Food for thought.

With today’s announcement it was only a matter of minutes before Blizzard launched the official website for Overwatch and even less for us to work on a new domain for the game!
While the team is working hard on the new website, we suggest you to watch (again?) the cinematic trailer for the new franchise!
