The game looks polished but enuf of the hero shooter Moba bullshitz

Everyone is doing it and nobody is playing it,

People got bored of overwatch 2 already they should've seen it's a dying market.

They releasing thesd games a little too late,

Just like battle royale or 4 player online coop with fcken gaas is a dying concept.

Plenty of people still play Overwatch 2. The 24 hour peak on Steam is 44k players, and many on PC still use Battle.net to launch it out of habit, so on PC probably at least 70k players peak in the last 24 hours. Over on Xbox it is the 14th most played game currently on the official Xbox US most played rankings, and over on the TrueAchievements rankings (which are all regions instead of just US) it is at #16. TrueTrophies meanwhile has it as the #12 most played game on Playstation.
