The Overwatch 2 beta is finally here, and players can finally get a taste of how the hero shooter plays. With such a long gap between announcement and release, as well as a two-year hiatus on updates to the original Overwatch, there has been an understandable drop in player and viewership on Twitch. It lags behind its competitors, such as Valorant. The question is, will the sequel bring that audience back?

Going by the first day of the Overwatch 2 beta, the answer is a resounding “yes”. Last night, at one point, Overwatch was the most-watched category on Twitch. It peaked at 510,000 concurrent viewers, the most it had ever had. It looks likely to peak even higher today. Can we believe the numbers, though?
