Some controversial and interesting announcements make up Yesterday’s News. First we’ve got the ever-increasing possibility of a Harry Potter TV series with oversight from J.K. Rowling. We’ve got a new Overwatch hero announcement. And then to wrap things up we’ve got an announcement about a new XBox Controller made from recycled materials. Neat.
I’m sure redoing the whole thing as a TV series is a great plan that many will love. No one ever gets upset by Harry Potter stuff! Especially if they involve JK Rowling! -Bryan
Activision Blizzard released a new trailer for their latest hero in Overwatch 2. Lifeweaver is the newest support character with a nature focus including abilities such as sprouting Giant healing trees and clever tools like being able to pull teammates away from dangerous spots. Lifeweaver will be available starting April 11th with a limited time availability to play before he’s sent into the battle pass vault. -Joel
Microsoft has revealed their latest controller that strives to be a greener accessory. The Remix Special Edition sports a dark green hue and a post consumer recycled resin that is produced with reclaimed materials like automotive headlight covers, plastic water jugs, and CDs. Glad someone could put my old Nickelback albums to good use. -Joel
