Overwatch gained 10 million players last year despite no new heroes or modes

Despite being one of the biggest multiplayer games around, you don’t hear that much about Overwatch nowadays. There’s a good reason for that: Blizzard has been winding down development on the game for years as it’s been working on Overwatch 2. A year ago, the studio announced that Echo would be the last new hero released in the game before the sequel comes out (a day that remains a far-off mystery). Since then, it has remained at a near-standstill: Seasonal events repeat as they have in years past and the only new stuff to speak of are hero skins and the occasional map.

Surprisingly, the stagnant year didn’t stop Overwatch’s player base from growing. Speaking to Gamespot about his new role, Overwatch 2 director Aaron Keller revealed that the team-based shooter reached 60 million players as of 2021, 10 million more players than it had in late 2019.
