The game Overwatch seems to be able to become a legend before one year has passed since the release of the market. Blizzard’s successful FPS game Overwatch reached a record number of players over 30 million on all platforms. It is really a great success for a game which was released about a year ago. In addition, this new announcement came just three months after the announcement saying it had passed 25 million players.
However, there have been some doubts about the correctness of the total number of the players. It is not clear whether this number is only the number of people who buy the game. It’s possible that people involved in free weekend events are also included to this amount.
Regardless of the situation, the popularity of the game in general can be attributed to the Blizzard’s offering of new maps, characters and game modes frequently. In fact, these factors are very important in order to prevent the game becoming tedious. Thus, it can be said that the company follows the correct method to maintain the popularity of the game.
It was declared by the Game Manager of Overwatch, Jeff Kaplan, in the official forum of the game that three new maps which will be released in 2017 are being developed. Also, he talked about the possibility of coming of a game map editor.
It seems that the popularity of Overwatch will continue to spread worldwide. If this popularity of game continues, it should not be a surprise for anyone to get much more success in terms of number of players in the coming years.
