Blizzard has announced that it will remove the paid loot box from Overwatch and Heroes of the Storm in Belgium after the consequences of the sentences of last weekend.

The Belgian Commission declared the loot boxes illegal in April, after deciding that titles such as Overwatch (among others) violated the Belgian gambling rules. Blizzard, in a note, said she was surprised by the news but was nevertheless willing to follow the laws. As a result, it is no longer possible to buy treasure chests within Overwatch and Heroes of the Storm.

Players will still be able to earn them through in-game currencies and will still have access to all game content, even if they are not able to buy them.

A choice now required given the long bureaucratic process that took place in Belgium. What do you think about it?
