A lot of player backlash surfaced online when Activision and Blizzard launched Overwatch 2. However, and despite the controversy, Overwatch 2 is a huge success for both companies. According to its official Twitter account, the game hit 25 million players in just ten days.
TWENTY FIVE. MILLION. PLAYERS. IN. TEN. DAYS. ?

As we’ve already reported, Overwatch 2 requires a phone number, has a ping system, and has level grinding. The grinding was to be expected as this is a free-to-play game. Still, and despite all the whining, more than 25 players have played it. I guess everyone has mobile phones after all.
In Overwatch 2, new players have to win 50 quick-play matches to unlock competitive mode, and complete roughly 100 matches to unlock all the roster from the first Overwatch game.
