Blizzard Entertainment’s Overwatch League revolutionized the esports landscape, delivering high-stakes competition and thrilling entertainment to a global audience. To enhance the visceral excitement of its live Overwatch esports event, Blizzard enlisted TAIT’s expertise as their production partner for the 2019 and 2020 seasons. Our task: transform these competitions into unmissable arena experiences.

We worked our magic to ensure every detail of the Overwatch League events was electrifying, from synchronized lighting and dynamic camera work to precisely timed pyrotechnics and confetti showers.

We also collaborated directly with league teams to enhance their home events, managing special activations and developing unique sponsorship packages for the Overwatch esports players. Within the stadiums, we set up fan zones with live music and immersive activities – winning the hearts of families, cosplay enthusiasts, and hardcore gamers alike.

By combining Blizzard’s captivating game design with our innovative event production, we turned Overwatch’s virtual battles into heart-pounding arena spectacles. As a result, the 2019 Overwatch League was an outstanding success, selling out tournaments around the globe and increasing its draw by over 18%.
