StarCraft References in OverwatchEdit

  • StarCraft as a video game franchise appears to exist in the universe of Overwatch, as the character D.Va was considered to be the number 1 ranked StarCraft player at the age of 16.[1]
  • Among the unlockable portraits in the game are the symbols of the Dominion Marine Corps, Zerg Swarm, Khalai Caste and Terran Dominion as well as the heads of Jim Raynor, Sarah Kerrigan and Artanis. The "GL HF" portrait is also that of a pixilated Jim Raynor in marine armor.
  • In the game's theatrical trailer, a Terran Dominion logo can be seen on one of the soldier's shoulder pads.[2]
  • In the offense spawning point of the game's Hollywood level, there are various arcade machines that reference different Blizzard franchises. One, named Siege Mode 3, contains a terran siege tank facing down against a marine, with a vulture occasionally speeding by. Another is named Lost Vikings VI, and contains a terran viking, which is a reference to the Blizzard property, the Wings of Liberty campaign minigame, and the unit. Finally, machines named Fighters of the Storm (a reference to Heroes of the Storm) show the characters Tychus Findlay and Sarah Kerrigan.
  • In the offense spawning point of the Route 66 level, a comic on the diner's counter is named "Craft of the Stars." The comic's cover has the faces of Jim Raynor, Sarah Kerrigan and Zeratul, as well as a protoss mothership surrounded by battlecruisers.
  • D.Va has an unlockable emote named "Game On," where she plays a holographic game where she controls a terran viking.
