Overwatch Beta Today

As Blizzard previously announced, today begins closed beta testing for Overwatch, their upcoming multiplayer first-person shooter. The Overwatch Twitter account has a few additional notes about this. This tweet says there isn't an exact launch time for the beta (though after the current maintenance ends is a good guess) and this tweet explains that once the beta is live, they will begin flagging accounts to participate "in waves," which may take hours to complete. Finally, this tweet notes that there are no "keys" for the beta, warning to watch out for scams offering them. A note later added to the original announcement says this will be available in the EU as well as North America.

Did not the day of FPS come and go quite some years ago?

It boggles my mind that Blizz is pouring dev resources into this after canceling Titan, virtually saying MMOs have no future.

The existing FPS market is over-saturated as it is.

Overwatch looks a lot like Planetside 2 to me, i.e. for whales with only the best rigs money can buy, which is a pretty small market.
I don't see how they can make a profit unless they stoop to selling ships/weapons like Chris Roberts.
