The Story of Overwatch: The Fall of Titan is an excellent three part video series

Blizzard's Titan MMO was supposed to be the next big thing when it comes to massively multiplayer games, and so broad in scope it would put World of Warcraft to shame, but unfortunately it ended up going through a troubled development process and was eventually canceled. All that work didn't go to waste, however, as Overwatch rose from its ashes and created something truly unique, a game that has managed to make countless thousands go berserk whenever someone says "beta key".

But did you ever wonder what really caused the Titan to fall, and what series of events led to the inception of Overwatch? If so, I have some good news because it is exactly these questions that GameSpot's three part series 'The Story of Overwatch' goes over in immense detail, backed up with interviews from all of the key Blizzard members involved in both projects.

If you're interested in the fascinating world of game development, or simply want to take a peek behind the veil, I fully recommend you give it a watch. Its a bit long at 20 minutes, but it offers such a unique perspective on Blizzard's inner workings that its hard to say it wasn't worth every second. Have a look:
