LEGO Overwatch 2 Null Sector Titan launches this year
With the latest news that Overwatch 2 will finally release in the first half of 2022, 9to5Toys can now report that one of the LEGO Group’s most popular video game collaborations is being relaunched. Scheduled to return later this fall, you can head below for all the details on the upcoming LEGO Overwatch 2 Null Sector Titan set.
First LEGO Overwatch 2 set launched later this fall
The LEGO Group first teamed up with Blizzard in early 2019 when the first wave of Overwatch kits landed on store shelves. The original six sets covered many of the game’s iconic characters and locations, which then expanded to include some of the new heroes introduced later. After airing throughout 2021, the theme then took a hiatus in recent years.
Almost two years after the release of this latest pair of sets, the LEGO Overwatch collection appears to be receiving another set at the end of this year. In preparation for the release of Overwatch 2 in the first half of next year, this will be our first look at what to expect from the LEGO theme going forward.
The bulk of what’s new today follows a report that the LEGO Group will consolidate all of its video game properties into one larger theme aptly named LEGO Games. This would allow sets that don’t end up having their own collection to be released as more stand-alone versions in the new category.
For now, there is only one set from the Blizzard video game set to release this year, at least on which we have confirmation. Considered the Titan of the Void Sector, the LEGO OverWatch 2 set will be based on the sequel and more specifically on the game’s opening cinematic, Hour H.
Assembling the massive mecha from 901 pieces, the set will recreate a scene from the main storyline of the upcoming Blizzard title. It is not known if all of the bricks will be used on the Titan itself, or if some will be assigned to decors suited to the Parisian setting of the game. As cool as it is to receive a giant version of the Null Sector Titan, to have a few versions. additional to complement the theme would certainly be nice too.
We also know that the Overwatch 2 set will launch with a $ 90 price tag, tying it together with the biggest LEGO themed set we’ve seen so far – Watchpoint: Gibraltar. The set is slated to launch later this year in November, although an official release date has yet to be confirmed. Considering the delays on the sequel to the game so far, there is of course still the possibility that this set could be pushed back until 2022.
One of the most important aspects of the construction that is still pending is knowing which minifigures will be included. Although we can pretty much guess who will make the cut. It’s likely we’ll see Tracer, Winston, and Genji given that they’re all part of the game’s mascots at this point and all three have already been included in the LEGO theme so far. The Overwatch 2 cutscene also features characters who have yet to see their likeness recreated as a minifigure. So there’s a chance we’ll end up seeing Mei as well as Brigitte too.
Although the bigger question is whether or not the LEGO Group will release brand new minifigures for the heroes we’ve seen before or not. Overwatch 2 has given most of the cast’s updated designs, which could mean we’ll see fully updated LEGO minifigures to accompany the upcoming Null Sector Titan.
9to5Toys’ To take:
If there are two things that I’m a big fan of, it’s LEGO and Overwatch. So to say I’m excited about the collaboration’s return is a bit of an understatement. Given how much of a fan I was of the original lineup, it will be exciting to see how things change with the theme returning from the break.
