When Overwatch came out, we were promised a dynamic and diverse world with rich lore. However, Blizzard has not followed through on that. For three years, we've gotten very little - some animated shorts, a few comics, and a few snippets of confirmed lore. We know virtually nothing about the world or the characters beyond superficial facts. For some, we don't even have that much.

For many fans, Overwatch's main draw was the story and the world that Blizzard put forth. However, the lack of updates on this front has pushed many fans away from the once beloved game. The most recent thing we got was a book about Orisa and Lucio that is ridiculously hard to acquire outside the USA, and our pleas to not let the game die have fallen on deaf ears. We don't want just books only available in the US. It's a start, but we want more; we want what we were promised and led to believe we'd get three years ago. We want more animated shorts, we want more comics, and we want Blizzard to tell us more about the world we grew to love. We want to be able to rekindle the wonder and enthusiasm a lot of us felt for the game's universe when it was first released.

Tell us more about Horizon Lunar Colony! Tell us about the time Genji spent with Zenyatta! Tell us about Zarya's time serving her country and her interactions with Sombra. How did Sombra keep her identity secret so long? How did BOB and Ashe come to be the team they are today? What happened to Mercy after the recall? 

What happened to our beloved characters? What happened to the world we all wanted to believe in? Blizzard, your game and your fanbase deserves better. Please give us what you promised us three years ago, and don't let the game die because you didn't develop the world.
