It seems Overwatch had a great first week. The game topped the U.K. sales chart, and finally toppled Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End from the number one spot.
Overwatch launched on May 24th for PC and console. Almost half of the game’s sales during the measured period were for the PlayStation 4. The Xbox One took in 36 percent of copies sold, with PC taking in 18 percent. It is worth noting, however, that the chart only tracks retail sales and not digital ones. It is safe to assume that many Blizzard players purchased the game directly through Battle.net.
Overwatch not only topped the U.K. sales chart, but also managed to sell out on Amazon. Blizzard has hinted at a mysterious character named Liao, and rumors circulated just before launch about another new character named Sombra. Overall, the game has received universal praise, despite being a multiplayer only title. You can check out Gamespresso’s review of the title here.
