Overwatch 2 will likely be the best game on Twitch today – but should it be?

The Overwatch 2 beta has finally arrived and players can finally get a taste of how the hero shooter plays. With such a long gap between announcement and launch, as well as a two-year break from updates to the original Overwatch, there has been an understandable drop in the number of players and viewers on Twitch. It lagged behind competitors such as Valorant. The question is, will the sequel bring that audience back?

If the first day of the Overwatch 2 beta is anything to go by, the answer is a resounding “Yes.” At one point last night, Overwatch was the most viewed category on Twitch. It reached an impressive 510,000 concurrent viewers, the most it ever had. It seems likely that it will peak even higher today. But can we believe the numbers?
