Overwatch Reaches 10 Million Players
That's up from 7 million just a couple weeks ago.
Overwatch's playerbase now stands at 10 million people and counting, developer Blizzard announced today on social media.
This was confirmed on Twitter. Blizzard said, "Ten million Overwatch agents activated and counting! Thank you for daring to see the world for what it could be."

That figure, which is up from 7 million last month, combines player totals on PC, Xbox One, and PS4. (It doesn't necessarily equate to 7 million sales, as there could be multiple players using a single copy.)
Citing unspecified internal data and reports from distribution partners, the company proclaims Overwatch is "one of the most successful global game launches of all time." It's unclear exactly what metrics it used to determine this.
Overwatch will add a competitive play mode later this month, and more content is slated for release sometime this summer. In the meantime, Blizzard isn't shying away from banning cheaters and is hoping to improve its Play of the Game sequence that follows every match.
