Twitch viewership for the Overwatch 2 beta is still kissing the high skies, reaching a previously unheard-of high. Last night, the Overwatch 2 beta achieved a historic milestone of over 1 million spectators for the first session, smashing the former benchmark of roughly 500,000.
It’s hardly a major shock that the company has broken its previous standards. Although having a loyal following regardless of the lack of new material for over a year, the competitive shooter has failed to make a splash in the entertainment industry. Overwatch 2 beta registration may be earned by following enough particular broadcasters, which is even more vital to the game’s rapid tempo.
The Streamers Are Dragging Their Audience
The publisher is trying to get as many gamers interested in Valorant as feasible since other huge fish in the water, like Overwatch, have moved in to cover the void. Streaming the Overwatch 2 beta to a focused population is a good way to get people to offer it at another (or first) glance.

Veteran Overwatch players A Seagull and xQc are among the Twitch streams participating in the campaign, which presently attracts more than 100,000 spectators apiece. As it grows, more and more large variety broadcasters would join in, and their viewers will be dragged alongside.
Still, Time To Break One More Record
There is still time for Overwatch 2 to shatter its current milestones in the beta, which ends on May 17. The big issue is: how much more of a drop-off can we expect once the beta admission campaign is over? Even while it’s tough to foresee such large figures continuing indefinitely, they won’t go away any time soon.
Youtubers would keep playing as long as enthusiasm in the game is high, and spectators would notice. Warzone, on the other hand, has the potential to capture some of Overwatch 2’s glory. Almost a day following the Overwatch 2 beta went live, Warzone season 3 premiered to a growing audience.
My money is on Overwatch 2, however, time will prove whether it lost the wager or won a big time.
