And it’s still going up.
Since its launch back in late May, Overwatch has been nothing short of a massive, well-received success. Blizzard’s first-person online multiplayer shooter has a ton of charm to it, and with over 20 different characters to choose from, there’s something for everyone. And with the company continuing to shower the game with content support, there’s no wonder why this game continues to go strong even two months after release.
