Overwatch Boasts 35 Million Players

A tweet from Overwatch has a quick video on the success of Overwatch, Blizzard's multiplayer shooter for Windows and consoles. The clip shows Dr. Junkenstein with the following quote: "35 million players and counting... Cheers, mates!" The body of the tweet paraphrases a Junkrat tag line: "What a bunch of misfits and freaks we got here—we love it! Thanks for teaming up with us, heroes."

It's a nice lightweight sequel to Team Fortress, but it lacks enough complexity to keep me interested in it.

35 million means nothing. How many are 2-week active and concurrently active?

Nostalrius Begins at its peak had 850,000 registered users of which 150,000 were 2-week active with a peak concurrency of 15,000.

I'd bet there are less than 1 million active players at any given time. The game is just getting to be a bit stale.

1 million active players is a bit stale?

That seems like an odd argument, or are those two sentences supposed to be unrelated?

Not at all, just that a huge majority of people who bought the game have moved on. Less than 1 million active players across three platforms it was released on worldwide seems like a likely estimate to me. My friends list consisted of 100 players for overwatch alone at one point, and there are perhaps 4-8 max ever playing the game anymore, with the same few folks usually consisting of the low number. I just extrapolate the estimate from that, while taking into account that the game also has multiple regions and platforms.

Overwatch is the most overhyped piece of drek released recently. Its a storyless, boring team shooter that we have seen a million times

But because female twitch streamers can cosplay it and they give away skins in a loot chest its suddenly the best thing ever

Ahh no, Blizz forgot to subtract all the millions of banned accounts. They are cheating.
