The inaugural season of the Overwatch League concludes with the playoffs this summer, but that isn't the end at all. This two-year deal, which encompasses the entirety of the league's first two seasons, makes that a reality.

Overwatch League skins are now available on Overwatch's live server. The deal, announced earlier today, is believed to be the biggest exclusive distribution deal in esports history.
