A new Lego set should hit the market on February 1, 2022, the thematically based on the hero shooter Overwatch 2. This is the article with the number 76980 and includes both the giant Titan from the well-known Cinematic and the characters of Tracer and Mei. But the February release will not work for the moment.
As Lego has announced, will Overwatch 2 set not released on February 1, 2022 as planned – if any. The trigger for this decision is the great Activision scandal that started last year and the aftermath of which can still be felt today. The statement reads:
“We are currently reviewing our partnership with Activision Blizzard. We have concerns about the progress that is being made to address ongoing allegations about workplace culture, particularly the way we treat women and create a diverse and inclusive environment. While we are conducting this review We will pause the release of a Lego Overwatch 2 product that was supposed to go on sale on February 1, 2022. “
By the way, Lego did not reveal how long the review process will take in the context of the statement. However, the Overwatch 2 set is not expected to hit the market anytime soon. In the worst case for the waiting fans Lego could even completely break off the partnership with Activision Blizzardwhat the end would mean for more sets of this type.
