Overwatch has already surpassed 7 million players

Blizzard Entertainment has announced that Overwatch has already passed 7 million players, logging more than 119 million hours combined in one of the most successful global game launches of all time.

Now as you may have noticed, there is no performance analysis for this title and the reason is simple; Overwatch does not feature really demanding visuals, and runs great even on toasters. Still, we may publish a Performance Analysis at a later date.

Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment, said:

“Over the months and weeks leading up to release we saw a lot of love and support for Overwatch—from Blizzard gamers, FPS fans, and people who’d never picked up a game like this before—and we’re very grateful for everyone’s incredible passion and enthusiasm. We poured a lot of effort into creating a game—and a new universe—that anyone could enjoy. We’re ecstatic to have had such a successful launch, and we’re looking forward to all of the fun, competition, and new content still to come.”

Since launch, players have swapped heroes 326 million times and teamed up to deliver 11 million payloads to their destinations on the battlefields of tomorrow. In addition to being a smash with players around the world.
