The International Omnic Defense Summit Director: Nathan Service
In 2044, robots with extremely advanced AI, called omnics, declared war on humanity. “As the world teetered on the brink of anarchy, a new hope arose: an elite international task force, charged with ending the war, and restoring liberty to all nations. Overwatch: soldiers, scientists, adventurers, and oddities; guardians who secured global peace for a generation. Under its steadfast protection, the world recovered.”
Immediately following the Omnic Crisis, the Overwatch continued to be a beacon of hope and peace for those affected by the conflict; however, due to a variety of factors including prominent mission failures, corruption/mismanagement, and accusations of human rights violations, the Overwatch was disbanded twenty years after the Crisis.
Five years after the dissolution of Overwatch, the world seems to be on the brink of conflict once again. Accusations of unethical, if not criminal actions, levied against some of the world’s largest corporations, unpredictable severe weather conditions, and rising tension between humans and omnics plague the world as a whole. More pressingly, some omnic factories have started producing hostile combat-oriented omnics once again. In response, leaders from around the world have called a summit to discuss the threats looming on the horizon.
