A short but sweet news story for you here: Overwatch has broken the 25 million player mark. Blizzard's super popular shooter seems to have gone from strength to strength ever since it launched in May of last year, and such a high user count shows that it isn't ready to slow down just yet.

Over the months that it's been on the market, the developer's done well to keep the release in the limelight. Regular updates and seasonal events have kept players coming back for more, while critics continue to swamp the title with praise - just look at how many Game of the Year lists it made, for example.

The key point here is that Overwatch is still growing. Given Blizzard's history of continued support for its products, it's perhaps no surprise to see the studio handle the game so well. In any case, it'll be interesting to see how the release shapes up over the course of 2017 and beyond.
