As you may remember, back in October Blizzard announced that Overwatch had reached 20 million registered players, and that it was the fastest ever Blizzard title to hit such a figure. Then on January 26th it announced the game had hit 25 million players, which means that in a little over three months the game gained another 5 million players.
Overwatch launched back on May 24, 2016, aka it has hit 30 million players without even full year on the market. It is one of the fastest ever games to hit this particular player milestone.
It’s important to note that this doesn’t mean 30 million copies sold, and includes players with more than one account, etc.
Overwatch is available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, where you can find roughly 30 million gamers trying to figure out how to get on the payload.
