In the press release, the company announced that this feature will begin later this month.

“This will enable players to sign up for and log in to games such as World of Warcraft®, Heroes of the Storm®, Hearthstone®, Diablo® III, StarCraft® II, and Blizzard’s most recent blockbuster release,Overwatch®, using their Facebook accounts.”
