More than 7 million players have joined Overwatch’s fight for the future, Blizzard Entertainment announced today.
Since the game launched worldwide on May 24, players have logged more than 119 million hours, making the launch one of the “most successful” of all time. Eleven million payloads have been delivered, with players swapping out heroes 326 million times.
Overwatch has seen support from Blizzard gamers, first-person shooter fans, and folks “who’ve never picked up a game like
before,” Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime said. “We poured a lot of effort into creating a game—and a new universe—that anyone could enjoy.”
Morhaime added Blizzard is looking forward to “all of the fun, competition, and new content still to come.”
