7 Mio. aktive Spieler spielen Overwatch

In einer gestern veröffentlichten Pressemitteilung hat Blizzard bekannt gegeben, dass es seit dem 24. Mai 2016 über 7 Mio. aktive Spieler in Overwatch gibt. Diese Spieler haben zusammen bereits jetzt mehr als 119 Millionen Stunden gespielt.

Auch interessant, die 7 Mio. Spieler haben wohl bereits über 326 Mio. Mal ihre Helden im Spiel gewechselt und über 11 Millionen Payloads / Frachten erfolgreich ins Ziel begleitet. Anzumerken wäre vielleicht noch, dass es sich bei den 7 Mio. Spielern um PS4, Xbox One und natürlich die PC-Version von Overwatch handelt.
