::[https://playoverwatch.com/en-us/blog/20130523 Overwatch is Back: Uncertainty and Hope after UN Confirms Vigilante Activity]. This article is the big one, released at the same time of the game, confirming that yes, Overwatch has indeed been reinstated. Outside of that, it's been alluded to several times. Such as an in-game interaction between Winston and Soldier: 76, the former saying "Someone's going to put a stop to your illegal activities." and the latter saying "You're one to talk! You and your friends are breaking the law, same as me.". Genji also mentioned that the "world is changing once again" in ''Dragons'', though that's a little more vague it seems like a good allusion. Also, Doomfist is mentioned to want to exact revenge on Overwatch for imprisoning him. The only real problem is that we don't know who all are members, because it's been taking forever for Blizzard to actually tell the story of Overwatch and we've barely scratched the beginning of he current events, but it's safe to say that Overwatch is no longer disbanded, technically speaking. -[[User:Strangethoughts1|Strangethoughts1]] ([[User talk:Strangethoughts1|talk]])

:::Hmm, that article is just in-universe speculation. I'll leave off a citation for now, then. It'd be nice if we could eventually get a clear-cut source, but as you say, Blizzard's slow-moving with current events. :) - [[User:Fuzzlepuzzle|Fuzzlepuzzle]] ([[User talk:Fuzzlepuzzle|talk]])

Standing

Can we change their standing from being "disbanded" to "reinstated and criminalized"? It's no longer disbanded. Winston reinstated Overwatch at the end of Recall and their return has been alluded to several times. Granted, we don't know who all are members besides Winston and Tracer (and Athena), but Genji, McCree, Mercy, Torbjörn, and Reinhardt were among the agents recalled and I think it should be noted. - Strangethoughts1 (talk)

That's fair. I think we didn't because Winston attempting to start it up again doesn't necessarily mean he succeeded, but it seems likely that at least Genji and Tracer have returned. I haven't been following Overwatch news for a while so I don't know what a good source would be. Do you know of any in-world news articles etc. that refer to Overwatch being active? - Fuzzlepuzzle (talk)
