We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Overwatch Headquarters

The ruins of Overwatch's HQ

The headquarters of Overwatch[1] were situated in Switzerland.

Description[edit | edit source]

The Overwatch headquarters was a large, sprawling complex that housed its members. It featured the Overwatch Training and Evaluation facility, offices for staff, a hangar bay, and scientific laboratories.[2]

History[edit | edit source]

One year before the group was disbanded, the site was destroyed in an apparent accident. Among the casualties were Jack Morrison and Gabriel Reyes. Reyes had led an internal rebellion against Overwatch, and the two men had come to blows in the base. At some point, their fighting triggered an explosion that destroyed the facility, killing both of them (supposedly), and numerous others.[3] Morrison, however, survived.[1]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The first glimpse of a non-destroyed headquarters came in the twelfth Overwatch comic, Uprising.
