Newsbrief: Blizzard's high-flying hero shooter Overwatch has amassed 20 million registered players in under five months. 

It's worth noting that 20 million registered players doesn't translate to 20 million copies sold or unique players, but simply refers to the number of accounts created. 

Still, it's a sign of the game's continued momentum. Last time Blizzard released an official player count in August the total number clocked in at 15 million, meaning another 5 million accounts have been added in the two months since.
