Bad timing, Overwatch curbstomped this game. I wonder if this game will go free to play to keep its playerbase.

Well that's a pretty crappy opening, hope it didn't have a big budget.

I'm actually suprised it sold this amount, here in the Netherlands it got quite low reviews and its already well in stock pre-used in every store I have visited

I think coming out exactly the same time as Overwatch really really hurt this game. I've had many people try to point out that they'er very different games, but really, they're not different enough in a world where you choose to put down your money and hours.

Strange picture choice, I don't recognize those skins for Hanzo and Genji, must be Origin pack skins!

They need to drastically cut price. People wont buy it at 60$.
Get it down to 20$ range and there will be people getting it.

lol it just went on sale on the PS4 deal of the week, dropped from €70 to 40, it's not quite at the $20 mark but still it's damn better than shelling out 70 for the worse game of the 2 on offer.

Yep I noticed the quick price cuts as well. Like you said it's a shame because the games not that bad I just don't enjoy the FP view from MOBAs.
