Instead, the main thrust of this update is to make it easy for players to enjoy Overwatch League, the Blizzard-crafted esports gaming organization. Overwatch, meanwhile, has more than 35 million registered members.

The fact the deal was struck so late could affect viewing numbers, said one analyst.

Earning 9/10 in our original review, Overwatch is a fantastic first-person shooter with engaging mechanics and a host of charming characters.

Overwatch League's two-year deal to stream its matches on Twitch is the biggest such contract in esports history, worth at least $90 million ( £66 million), according to a new report from Sports Business Journal.

Lloyd Center Sears on list of stores to close; Springfield outlet too
On the mall's east end, the former Sears building's upper floors will house a 14-screen movie theater encased in glass. After the planned closures this year, Sears will operate about 1,000 Sears and Kmart locations.

For its part, the internal platform of Blizzard and MLG will show half of the games of the regular season, but it is expected that the largest audience will come from Twitch, which will be in charge of broadcasting in Korean, English, and French in all regions, except China.

"There is no doubt that the delay in confirming the distribution deal will have impacted the negotiations by teams for sponsorships and will give Twitch very little time to build awareness before the first match, which suggests the opening matches may have relatively low viewer numbers". "That's why this historic and ground-breaking partnership is perfectly suited for Activision Blizzard, for Twitch, and-most importantly-for our growing global fanbase".

"This cements Twitch's position as the strongest Western player in live e-sports video, and I consider the platform a natural home for the Overwatch League", he said. It's unclear how much of the $90 million Twitch is paying Blizzard is going towards OWL streaming, or what else would be included in the contract.

Blizzard Entertainment is betting a lot on the Overwatch League.
