Eight new teams have been confirmed for the second season of the Overwatch League, and Blizzard has provided us with our first look at the team colours for newcomers the Chengdu Hunters.

As you can see from the images reproduced here, the new team has assumed the panda as its logo.

Wu Zefeng, General Manager of Game Broadcasting Business for owners HUYA Inc had this to see alongside the announcement:

”The Overwatch League is an international league, and the Chengdu Hunters will not only impress the gaming world with their excellent performance but also will bring to the league more Chinese elements, increasing our diversity,” he began.

“The name, Chengdu Hunters, means bravery, smartness, swiftness, and team work; the name was chosen as a symbol of the team’s dedication to pursuing the honor of the league.

“Further, we chose the giant panda as the team’s logo because it is the national treasure of China, the symbol of Chengdu, and a symbol of peace and good luck. At the same time, the panda also boasts powerful fighting strength and represents the Chinese spirit of perseverance, and collectively with the team’s name, represents the team’s determination to achieve victory.”

The Overwatch League 2019 commences on 14th February (Happy Valentine's Day!) and will see a total of twenty teams compete against each other throughout the spring and early summer.
