OWL 2022 Season Will Start In April On An 'Early Build' Of Overwatch 2

OWL 2022 Season Will Start In April On An 'Early Build' Of Overwatch 2
Overwatch League

Overwatch League is planning to start its 2022 season in April of next year.

Jon Spector, Overwatch League Vice President at Blizzard, tweeted to confirm the news regarding the date, much to the delight of fans. 

He wrote: "I've seen a lot of speculation regarding a 2022 start date for OWL. We can confirm that our plan is to begin next season in April 2022. We will share more details about 2022 roster construction timelines soon and more info generally on our 2022 season as we get closer to April."

A League spokesperson also confirmed to The Dallas Morning News that the season will be built on an 'early build' of Overwatch 2. This news comes after multiple sources confirmed to GGRecon that the League was considering a longer break, potentially until mid-autumn next year, as they wanted the season to be played on a full build of the game's sequel. However, it looks as though an 'early build' is sufficient enough for them to host next year's season on, judging by Spector's recent Tweet. 

Fans are, of course, delighted at the news - which would mean a six-month offseason rather than a potential year-long break. 

Some, however, have expressed concern that the game will be 'rushed', or that the season may still be pushed back. 

This news comes as Activision Blizzard is currently embroiled in a controversial lawsuit, as the Californian Government has put forward accusations of misogynistic attitude and reports of sexual assault in the workplace.

The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) claimed that staff at the company have been subjected to routine harassment including “cube crawls,” - a common affair in which their male employees get intoxicated and "crawl" through the female work cubicles to engage in “inappropriate behaviour."

"Male employees proudly come into work hungover, play video games for long periods of time during work while delegating their responsibilities to female employees, engage in banter about their sexual encounters, talk openly about female bodies, and joke about rape," the report stated.
