With Season 7 of Overwatch 2 in full swing, you may be wondering what the current player count is, especially since it has fluctuated somewhat since the game's initial launch in October 2022.

Following the first anniversary of the game's release, just how many players have stuck around through the ups and downs of this live service title? With Overwatch 2 now free-to-play, it's seen an incredible boost to its base number of active players, with Season 7 having a clear impact.

What is the player of Overwatch 2 Season 7 so far?

There are several live number trackers which give an estimate of current players in the game. Sites such as Active Player go one step further by compiling the data of users per month to see how much the game has grown and maintained its audience.

Here, we've broken down some of the results and the number of players from the start of Season 7:

  • Average Monthly Players - 25,842,352
  • Average Daily Players - 1,722,824
  • Monthly Gain/Loss from Previous Month - +897,996 (+3%)

Once again, Overwatch 2 has been on the up and up, with an increase of nearly 900,000 players from the previous month. While it is a smaller increase than that of the previous month, it shows the impact of drawing players in with the Halloween Terror updates and its residual impact as we near the season's end.

Overwatch 2 continues to hit that 25 Million mark, with it edging ever closer to 26 Million. With new Heroes like Mauga on the way too, it will be interesting to see where the next season's player count takes us.

What was the launch player count for Overwatch 2?

Despite Blizzard's unfortunate recent fumblings, Overwatch 2 doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Overwatch 1 previously hit 7 million players in its first week and became Blizzard's fastest-selling console game of all time. Meanwhile, Overwatch 2 is reported to have had over 37 million players during its first month, according to an Activision Q3 earnings report.

Activision is usually tight-lipped about the exact player count, but this information is safe to assume according to the report and the tweet from the official Overwatch account listed above. According to its page, the game received over 25 million players within the first ten days of the launch of Overwatch 2.

That's everything you need to know about the current player count for Overwatch 2 during Season 6. For more, head to our Overwatch 2 homepage for guides like Overwatch 2 online requirements or the Hero counters list.
