Is OpTic Gaming Adding an Overwatch Team?

One of esports' biggest organizations might be throwing its hat into Overwatch next.

Mark this one under speculation and rumor, but if it is true, itcould be big news. FNATIC Overwatch player, CoolMatt69, might havespilled the beans on the next big organization to jump intoOverwatch esports, and it is none other than the “Green Wall” ofOpTic Gaming.

Check out the Oddshot of CoolMatt69’s live stream, as heaccidentally lets out what could be secret stuff going onbehind the scenes, or a baseless rumor with nothing behind it atall. We will let you be the judges.  

“Yeah, I think OpTic is talking to WEUNITED. I don’t know ifthat’s a spoiler, I shouldn’t have said anything.”

Well, he definitely sounds like a guy who just put his foot inhis mouth, at the very least.

WEUNITED is an Overwatch squad that consists of both Americansand Europeans, such as TwoEasy, z0mbs, Forsak3n and even Rod”Slasher” Breslau, a longtime esports journalist and communitymember. GosuGamers has WEUNITED ranked as the sixth-bestEuropean team and the thirteenth-best team in the world.

It would make sense for OpTic and pretty much any esportsorganization to move into Overwatch, as it appears to be on therise as a competitive game. While its numbers have not beenincredibly successful just yet, the game is still in its infancyand can only improve as time goes on. And if Blizzard’s trackrecord is any indication, Overwatch will be around as an esport fora long time to come.
