9.7M Players Take Part in Beta, Symmetra's Comic Arrives -

Overwatch was a huge hit over its open beta weekend with 9.7M players taking part. Those numbers are a record-breaker for Blizzard and far outpace similar games including Destiny (4.6M) and The Division (6.4M). Players racked up 4.9 billion minutes of game play.

In other Overwatch news, the latest online comic has been released that reveals the backstory of one of the game's support heroes, Symmetra.  You can read "Symmetra: A Better World" here.

Did you take part in the Overwatch open beta? What did you think?
