Blizzcon came with many announcements and while the world of gamers steadily approaches and prepared for more gaming news, Overwatch is going to be making some changes to its interface to offer a more interactive and playable gameplay.

Earlier in 2017, Activision Blizzard announced The Overwatch League, an esports organization comprised of teams from around the world. The cost of the Overwatch League uniform skins is unknown at the moment, as is the percentage of sales that goes directly to Overwatch League teams. He said that the designers of the game had team jerseys in mind when they designed the concept. The "home" version skins for all 12 will be available as official Overwatch League skins in 2018, and there will be options for all 26 in-game characters.

According to Nate, the Overwatch League team uniform skin follows the same mechanism with other traditional sports goods, with the purchases of these skins being used as financial support for the team.
