“Million of players” have logged in so far.
Continue pushing the objective, Overwatch players – the open beta has been extended until 10 AM PT, May 10th.
The beta was originally meant to close on May 9th but Blizzard announced the extension recently. It also noted that “millions of players” have been on thus far. As per its Battle.net post, “Over the last week, we’ve also had the opportunity to listen to your thoughts and opinions on the game; make improvements based on your reports in these very forums; and collect invaluable data just from you playing normally.
“We couldn’t be more grateful. So, as a small way of saying thank you to our community and the millions of players who’ve logged in so far, we will be extending the Open Beta by 1 day on all platforms.”
Overwatch will be launching on May 24th for Xbox One, PS4 and PC and despite the full release essentially containing the same content as the open beta, the dev team is promising tons of future content.
