Earlier tonight we learned the new Toronto Overwatch League expansion franchise will be known as the Toronto Defiant.  They also released their logo & branding, which relies on Black, Red, White and Grey.

And while the broadcast stream didn’t include much else than that, we did get some insight during the short Q&A that a roster has been set:

While a part of me wonders why they wouldn’t announce the roster as part of this event, having only had Jae and Bishop on stage to provide thoughts and answer questions, another part thinks this is simply part of a grand marketing plan to lengthen the news-cycle.  So look for a roster announcement in a few days to a week.

And lastly, how much more Canadian can you get with a launch event than having a host translating to French while on stage?  I wonder if Vancouver may do something similar?
