Despite hiccups, an impressive launch
The launch of Overwatch 2 has been incredibly bumpy for Blizzard and players alike, but now it’s clear that people were very eager to get in on the sequel to see what it’s all about.
According to Blizzard, Overwatch 2 has seen over twenty-five million heroes join the fight in the first ten days since its launch. Furthermore, Overwatch 2 is already achieving a daily player base spread near-even across EMEA, Asia, and the Americas that’s nearly triple the previous daily player peak from the original Overwatch.
As a thank you to players for their enduring support, any player who logs in from October 25 through to the end of Season One will receive an all-new Cursed Captain Reaper Legendary skin and a Health Pack Weapon Charm. Additionally, players can expect to earn double match XP on the following weekends:
