Overwatch player count in 2019 is unknown as Blizzard hasn't come out and revealed the official number and the last official reveal was during the two-year anniversary event during May 2018.
Overwatch has more than 40 million monthly players.
After playing #StormRising it's clear that #Blizzard/#Overwatch is only interested in content for esports/the top 1% of their player base. We literally waited a year for 20 minutes of content. pic.twitter.com/OiNhXG8TGe— Justin.W.F (@Justin_W_F) April 17, 2019
Overwatch Player Count 2019
It's tough to gauge how many players Overwatch currently has, but the press has only been poor since the 40 million player review. We've gone from poorly made events to cheap made skins. Blizzard has definitely had a tough 2019 with hundreds of layoffs. Bloomberg revealed a behind-the-scenes look at the decision:
"The game maker, one of the largest in the world, acknowledged on a November conference call that some key titles, such as Overwatch and Hearthstone, we're seeing flat or declining numbers of users. After disappointing sales of Destiny 2: Forsaken, the company parted ways with its developer, Bungie Inc., a move that could reduce annual revenue by as much as $400 million."
World of Warcraft is in a very similar boat where subscribers have plummeted and Battle for Azeroth was received poorly by the community.
With multiple Blizzard titles falling short and Overwatch releasing disappointing event after disappointing event, the player base should be in the high 20 million.
