The event marks the start of the competitive scene for a game that is promising to be a hit. According to the figures released by Blizzard, the open beta has attracted 9.7 million players. 82 million hours were played and if we do the math, each player spent over eight hours on average during the beta period, including the two days of extension.  

So far, the game has received a lot of positive feedback and the beta figures surpassed the Division’s beta that recorded 6.4 million players. However, there isn’t enough data to predict the future Overwatch sales. The Agent Rising tournament is inviting all the NA pro teams to kick off Overwatch in the competitive scene.
