Blizzard Entertainment’s team-based multiplayer first-person videogame Overwatch has been a phenomenal success, reeling in millions of players worldwide and winning major awards at the 2016 Game Awards.

Given its success and its massive following, it’s no wonder that some gamers are hoping to see the videogame get its own television series. Sure, Blizzard has Overwatch comics and videos, but it’d be great to see heroes like D.Va and Genji and Sombra and Tracer and everyone else get their own serialized television show.

Though there hasn’t been any word on deals between Netflix and Blizzad Entertainment, it seems like the videogame has gotten its own fan-made Netflix original series trailer. Created by Lion Montages, the fan-trailer is a mix and match of various Overwatch promotional videos that try to form one cohesive story.

Check it out down here:

The Overwatch promotional videos have always looked really great, and while the first two voice-overs sound a bit too loud, the YouTube channel edits the video material pretty well. Gamers have always wanted a a series based on the game’s characters and lore, and with a massive number of active users, it's such a shame that TV producers and networks still haven't considered the idea of bringing the game to the small screen. Let's just hope that they start noticing soon.
