Music is an integral part of video games, and especially Overwatch. Blizzard has always paid special attention to the sound environment of its maps, carefully crafted by the firm's musical team. With the release of an album, called Overwatch: Cities & Countries and the launch of Sigma's Maestro Challenge, we felt Blizzard's desire to go further in celebrating music within the game.

A group of beatboxers, a keyboardist, guitarists, electro DJs, a multi-instrumentalist duo and an electric quartet the styles and origins are varied and the creative approaches too, for our greatest pleasure.
