Overwatch 2 Players Can Help The Devs Build A New Map In Real-Time While On Twitch Tomorrow
The stream kicks off at 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time!
Blizzard will host a "Twitch Makes Overwatch" livestream tomorrow at 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time and allow Overwatch 2 players to help build a new map in real-time with the developers. As you might expect, this could become quite a chaotic livestream.
The official Overwatch Twitter account announced the community event in the afternoon yesterday. Game Director Aaron Keller and Art Director Dion Rogers will be heading the stream and creating the map with the help of players. With the chat feature, fans can shape the map from the ground up with their colliding wild, absurd, and unique ideas.
Join us on Wednesday Dec 21 at 5PM PT for our “Twitch Makes Overwatch” livestream with Overwatch 2 Game Director @aaronkellerOW and Art Director Dion Rogers as they create a map in real-time in collaboration with chat! 🤩

Keller wrote underneath the tweet that he and Rogers are using "internal tools to do this." Keller admitted he was "a little rusty, so go easy on me," but it's probably likely everyone will do the exact opposite!
From his Twitter account, Keller explained that Dion and himself hope to use players' "input to design and build a map, in our editor, and to just have fun." While not confirming if the map will appear in the actual game, Keller said it might be "something we'll be able to play together in the future."
If you're aiming to tune-in tomorrow, check out the Overwatch Twitch channel at 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time!
Note: Activision Blizzard is still under investigation by the state of California for serious harassment charges. CEO Bobby Kotick is alleged to have known about such actions within his company – and performed some himself – and shielded the perpetrators from consequences.
