Overwatch director Kaplan wants to make more games in that world

The director of Blizzard's team shooter Overwatch Jeff Kaplan has said that he "dreams" about making more experiences in that universe.

Speaking to Edge magazine - as reported by PCGamesN - the developer said that the company has always conceived of Overwatch as an entire world and not just a single game. The firm recently announced a sequel to the 2016 team shooter at this year's Blizzcon, but Kaplan says that he would love to make other experiences in the Overwatch universe that aren't shooters.

“We’ve always thought of Overwatch as a universe, not a single game," he said.

"The original game was the first expression of Overwatch, but we dream of what other forms of media could feature Overwatch. Movies? An animated series? What other game types would everyone love to see in the Overwatch universe? We hope that the characters of Overwatch exist far into the future and are expressed in ways that we can’t even imagine today.”
