While Blizzard is most notably known for their RTS and MOBA titles, an initial leap into the world of first-person shooters has been an overwhelming success. After running a free beta period that reached 9.7M gamers, over 10M players have actually purchased Overwatch and created an account. Most would consider this to be a pretty astounding feat just two weeks after the game's official launch.
