Overwatch 2 Attracts 25M Players in 10 Days

Blizzard announces that, despite launch difficulties, Overwatch 2 has reached 25 million players in the 10 days since the launch of the free-to-play shooter sequel. This notes that this is almost triple the number of players than the original Overwatch reached in the same time span (though, of course, you had to actually pay for that one). There are also more details on the promised compensation for those aforementioned launch issues:
As a thank you to players for their enduring support, any player who logs in from October 25 through to the end of Season One will receive an all-new Cursed Captain Reaper Legendary skin and a Health Pack Weapon Charm!
