Overwatch 2 PS5 PS4 PlayStation

Overwatch 2 was always going to be a big game, what with the legion of dedicated fans of the original Overwatch diving in and the floodgates being opened by the free-to-play nature of the sequel. Sure enough, Activision Blizzard has announced some pretty spectacular numbers, revealing that more than 35 million players have jumped into the game in the month since servers went live.

The news comes to us by way of Activision Blizzard's third-quarter financial results, where the publisher noted that "over 35 million people played the game in its first month, including many who were new to Overwatch. The expanded community is engaging deeply, with average daily player numbers for the first month of Overwatch 2 more than double that of its acclaimed predecessor."

What's more, Activision Blizzard reports that "player investment is also off to a strong start, positioning the title to be a meaningful contributor to Blizzard‘s business in the fourth quarter." In addition, a new hero named Rammatra will be coming to the game on 6th December, alongside the launch of Season 2, which is likely to draw in yet more players.
