Overwatch LEGO is coming, with Activision Blizzard announcing a partnership with LEGO Group to bring multiple building sets to market. LEGO sets for the hero shooter have yet to be revealed.
Other merchandise announced for the team-based FPS include Hasbro Master Toys, NERF blasters, and UNIQLO clothing. Activision Blizzard announced the new range of merch ahead of the Licensing Expo 2018.
"Since debuting at last year’s Licensing Expo, we’ve begun to successfully realize our vision of offering more value and more opportunities for our global licensing and retail partners by leveraging the blockbuster franchises that Activision and Blizzard have created and expanded over many years of dedicated development," said Tim Kilpin, CEO and president, Activision Blizzard Consumer Products Group. "For our hundreds of millions of players around the world, we’re working hard to build lasting global franchises that they can connect with across game platforms and through esports and vibrant transmedia story content. We are well positioned to continue playing a leading role in shaping the future of entertainment."
While other Activision Blizzard titles, including Call of Duty, Hearthstone, World of Warcraft, and Spyro are all set to get a raft of merchandise, Overwatch LEGO sets are by far the most exciting. Details are rather scarce at the moment, but they are said to be coming at numerous price points. No release date info has been revealed.
