Trivia

Blizzard World ticket
  • The map is an in-universe representation of Blizzard Entertainment's IPs. The concept can be seen as a parody/homage of Disney World and other similar theme parks.
  • The idea for the map came from BlizzCon 2015, when Chris Metzen discussed the idea of a Blizzard-themed park. The idea for a map based on such an idea was taken up by the Overwatch developers.[1]
