This sentiment is echoed in a statement by Pete Vlastelica, president and Chief Executive of Blizzard Entertainment’s Major League Gaming division, who says, “We’re thrilled to be joining forces with HP and Intel to ensure that the teams competing professionally in Overwatch are equipped with top-end technology. Multiyear collaborations such as this illustrate the momentum behind the Overwatch League as well as a long-term commitment by us and our partners in what we see as the future of esports.”
Back in June, HP also teamed up with Blizzard Entertainment to become the official PC of the Overwatch World Cup. This latest partnership further affirms our support of this stellar game, esports, and gaming enthusiasts around the world.
“In addition to being a showcase for some of the top players in the world, the Overwatch World Cup represents the global spirit at the heart of Overwatch," Vlastelica says. "We’re pleased to have HP’s help in supporting this friendly—and fierce—international competition.”
With BlizzCon starting tomorrow, the OMEN by HP team would like to invite everyone to stop by the OMEN Arcade and sign up to participate in wild 3v3 action as attendees team up with their friends for a chance to win a real-life loot box stuffed with OMEN hardware and Overwatch surprises. To top it off, matches will be shoutcasted by Dogman and Seamoose, Kara Corvus and Spoon Makes touring the show floor with HP Sprockets for some on-the-spot printed photos and social-media ops.
