Nothing to see here, move along
In the months since it first released, Overwatch 2 has been shedding players. It’s no secret that quite a few fans have been upset with a variety of decisions made by the dev team, and some of those frustrated players have stepped away. According to the dev team, this isn’t anything to worry about.
IGN had the chance to talk with executive producer Jared Neuss about many things, including the dropping player base. According to Neuss, this player fall-off is all part of the normal flow of a free-to-play game.
“The declining stuff is basically, we are a free-to-play game and it is very easy to both come to the game and check it out, and to leave to check out other stuff. We see a normal ebb and flow of players. There’s nothing concerning to me or the team about any of that.”
