Blizzard has released the first episode of its new Overwatch 2 anime series, Genesis. 

Today's episode is the first of three, and together, the series will focus on Omnic robots and how they went from human-made creations to what they are in the world of Overwatch 2. In Episode 1, Omnica Corp Scientists finally reveal the next generation of Omnics and it doesn't take long for them to ponder whether what they have done is good for society or the start of a new crisis.
