Upon completion of the review, we will suspend the release of the LEGO Overwatch 2 product, which goes on sale on February 1, 2022.

LEGO’s decision to reconsider its collaboration with Activision Blizzard is understandable in light of the seriousness of the allegations, as they are in no way compatible with the LEGO Group’s corporate values.

Since the charges against the blizzard have been known for six months, this could have been prevented in a timely manner. If the film for the set had not appeared four weeks ago, fans in the theme world would not have expected the set in the first place. The production of the set took place indirectly after the allegations became known. Memories of here Lego Technique Osprey Awake, he rejected LEGO at the last minute before the release due to inconsistencies with corporate values.
