Launching on Steam with “extremely negative” reviews was just the beginning for Blizzard Entertainment’s shareware team shooter Overwatch 2 – a few days after its debut, the game set a real anti-record.
Since its debut on August 10th, the Steam version of Overwatch 2 has garnered over 111,000 user reviews with an average rating of just 9% (still “very negative” ratings).
