Nate Nanzer, the Overwatch League Commissioner, is going to leave Activision Blizzard for joining Epic Games. Nanzer played an important role in launching the Overwatch League and he has been its only commissioner.
Nanzer tweeted he will be moving on from Activision Blizzard, the company behind the Overwatch game and league, for a “new opportunity.” He didn’t provide further details or a firm timeline except to say he’ll be leaving “soon.”
The first season of Overwatch League was a great success. The initial investors of the league included professional sports owners like the New England Patriots’ Robert Kraft, New York Mets’ Jeff Wilpon and Los Angeles Rams’ Stan Kroenke.
The league is set to fulfill Nanzer’s ultimate vision by launching a global home-and-away format next season. The majority of its regular season matches so far have been held in Southern California.
Nanzer tweeted that he “can’t emphasize enough how proud I am of what we’ve all accomplished together.”
