In an effort to stay on top of the expanding competitive gaming world, Activision Blizzard launched a new Overwatch league that's inspired by traditional sports teams.

The first-person-shooter game is one of the company's most popular, with advanced graphics and plenty of opportunity for character development as players progresses through the adventurous plot. When players join the new Overwatch league, they have even more motivation to improve their skills, while connecting with others within the community.

Unlike many of the other leagues that players can join, Activision Blizzard's is city-based. CEO Bobby Kotick explained the purpose of this by stating, "We thought the most important thing in celebrating our players was getting local recognition and developing that local bond fans have with their teams in their local markets."
