Blizzard is known for developing successful and popular games and it looks like the company found another winning formula with its latest game, Overwatch. The newly released multiplayer FPS hit a new milestone, reaching 10 million players in less than a month since release.

Blizzard celebrated this achievement with a video on Twitter, where it thanked all Overwatch players for purchasing the game.

Overwatch was originally available in the closed beta and even then players showed a lot of interest in the game. Based on the number of participants in the open beta, it was easy to tell  the game would be a successful title. In fact, interest in the game was so high that cinemas all around the world organized screenings of Overwatch trailers.

Unlike Blizzard’s previous successful title, World of Warcraft, Overwatch doesn’t require a subscription. Of course, Overwatch still has a healthy competition in its own house as the aforementioned WoW once had around 14 million monthly players at its peak and Blizzard’s free digital card game, Hearthstone, has around 40 million active players.

Overwatch is available on Windows PCs, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. You can purchase it and join the army of more than 10 million agents (and counting) for the price of $59.99.
