Overwatch Achieves Massive Success With 15 Million Players Globally

Soldiers. Scientists. Adventurers. Oddities. In a time of global crisis, an international task force of heroes banded together to restore peace to a war-torn world: OVERWATCH.  Overwatch ended the crisis, and helped maintain peace in the decades that followed, inspiring an era of exploration, innovation, and discovery. But, after many years, Overwatch’s influence waned, and it was eventually disbanded. Now, conflict is rising across the world again, and the call has gone out to heroes old and new. Are you with us?

For a new IP that released in May that truly is a massive success for Overwatch. When we reviewed Overwatch earlier this year, we called it “the best multiplayer first person shooter this gen thus far.” It also made this quarter Blizzard’s most successful ever:

Our verdict:

Overwatch is unlike anything else on the Xbox One and PS4. Yes, Battleborn exists and I’ve enjoyed that game for what it is and even reviewed it positively (you can read that here) But it’d be incredulous to not admit that Overwatch just brings something ‘special’ to the genre that makes it stand out from other shooters of a similar nature. Personally, I’d even go as far as calling it the most enjoyable multiplayer shooter on console to date. That’s not to say that other multiplayer shooters have been bad; they certainly haven’t but the Pixar-grade visuals mixed with everything else that makes Overwatch so great just puts it above the fray compared to other shooters. If you’re looking to get some genuine fun out of a multiplayer game then you can’t go wrong with Overwatch.

Have your say!
