Blizzard Entertainment this week launched the closed beta for Overwatch 2.
Yesterday the interest in seeing Overwatch 2 appears to have been high as there were over 1.5 million concurrent viewers on Twitch. This figure is a brand-new record for Overwatch on Twitch.
“Together we reached over 1.5M concurrent views, the highest day ever for Overwatch on Twitch,” reads a tweet from Blizzard.
It should be noted that one way to gain access to the beta was via Twitch drops. Those who watched the Overwatch 2 beta event on Twitch, which took place from 10 am PT to 6 pm PT, for fours were guaranteed access to the beta.
The closed beta is live until May 17 and offers four new maps: New Queen Street, Colosseo, Circuit Royal and Midtown. There are also eight old maps available to play.
