The retailer GameStop has reportedly ordered employees to destroy physical copies of Overwatch 1.
Stores can no longer sell Overwatch 1 as the game files will be overwritten when the sequel is installed.
A GameStop employee and TikTok user ksihinata recently uploaded a video showing an email directive from the retailer to destroy copies of the game.
The method of dealing with obsolete copies of games varies from one company to another.
While the practice of destroying discs is frowned upon, the copies are useless now that Overwatch has migrated its servers to OW2.
Gamers who want a physical copy may contact their local GameStop outlet to check if they still have any in stock.
