Soldiers, scientists, adventurers, oddities…associate game producers! We are the Overwatch team, passionate gamers at heart, and we’re looking for a new hero to help us make Overwatch 2 - the globe-spanning sequel to Blizzard Entertainment’s acclaimed team-based FPS game.

Members of the Overwatch team are driven to make the most fun and compelling experiences for our players. We spend our days collaborating and iterating on everything that goes into the game: from writing map lore to casting the next Overwatch 2 hero. Our goal is to always surprise and delight our players. We believe in maximum visibility and communication at the team level and with the people who play our game. This philosophy, along with the Blizzard values of “Gameplay First” and “Play Nice, Play Fair,” has made the original Overwatch one of Blizzard's most successful games, and it has forged a bond of trust with our worldwide player community that is extremely important to the development of Overwatch 2.
