Overwatch Hits 25 Million Players, Up From 20 Million

"The world needs heroes, and over 25 MILLION have answered the call!"


Overwatch continues to soar.

Blizzard announced today that the popular hero shooter has now reached 25 million registered players. The game has not necessarily sold that many copies, but whatever the case, 25 million is a big number.

In November, Blizzard announced that Overwatch had reached 20 million registered players, hitting that figure faster than any game in Blizzard's history.

Overwatch's latest seasonal event, Year of the Rooster, is currently underway. For a limited time, it adds a CTF-style Brawl mode and special Loot Boxes containing new items on all platforms. You can check out all of its newly added skins here. Additionally, Blizzard has announced that changes are in the works for the character Bastion.
