LEGO has decided to delay a new Overwatch 2 LEGO set, as the company continues to review its relationship with Activision Blizzard due to misconduct and harassment allegations against the game developer.

First reported by The Brick Fan, the Overwatch 2 Titan set was supposed to be released on February 1. Now, LEGO says it will update fans on the partnership once the company comes to a decision.

“We are currently reviewing our partnership with Activision Blizzard, given concerns about the progress being made to address continuing allegations regarding workplace culture, especially the treatment of female colleagues and creating a diverse and inclusive environment,” LEGO said in a statement. “While we complete the review, we will pause the release of a LEGO Overwatch 2 product which was due to go on sale on February 1, 2022.”

Most recently in the Activision Blizzard saga, an ABK Workers Alliance Strike Fund just raised over $350,000. Employees across the company are currently striking in solidarity with members of Raven QA, whose contracts were terminated late last year. For more on the strike, you can read our in-depth report on the topic.

Activision Blizzard’s legal issues entered the spotlight last Summer, when the company was sued by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing over allegations of ‘frat boy culture’ and sexual harassment.

As for Overwatch 2, Activision Blizzard recently delayed the sequel, alongside Diablo 4. While there was never an official release date in place, the game is now expected in 2023 or beyond.
