- Secretlab will produce a pair of licensed gaming chairs based on Blizzard Entertainment’s Overwatch.
- Chairs featuring the Overwatch game logo and imagery from fan-favorite character D.Va are available for pre-order.
- Blizzard Entertainment has a separate gaming chair partnership with Zipchair Gaming for the Overwatch League.
The Secretlab Overwatch Edition and Secretlab D.Va Edition chairs feature familiar logos from the team-based first-person shooter game, and both Secretlab’s Omega and Titan chair models can be outfitted with the designs. The chairs are currently available for pre-order.
“Together with Blizzard, we worked to create a product that will further inspire the Overwatch community—and particularly D.Va fans—and take their Overwatch gaming experience to the next level,” said Secretlab CEO and co-founder Ian Alexander Ang, in a release. “We took every detail of Overwatch’s incredible aesthetics and married them with the award-winning features of the 2020 Series—giving all Overwatch gamers a high-performance sitting experience, which will support even the competitive rigors of this lightning-paced game.”
These are the first gaming chairs to feature imagery from the game itself, but Blizzard previously announced a partnership in September with rival maker Zipchair Gaming to produce chairs based on the Overwatch League and its 20 teams. Those chairs have removable logo patches that allow owners to swap between different team designs.
