(With sоmе еxсеptiоns likе thе nеw Wаrсrаft mоviе аnd thе lаunсh оf Diаblо 3)

    It doesn't really take all that much time for things to really catch on these days. It was a little surprising though still I would say, but I am glad that it worked out that way.

    I think it is because the developer of the game has a really great marketing strategy and the game is so popular among the youtube community almost every youtube has played or reviewed it and many of them say positive things about it, overall the game is excellent

    That is good point about Youtube, which seems to be playing more and more of an important the word out. I am not sure many saw that coming a ways back but I like it.

    I think it's because they have a huge brand and they also have one of the best marketing strategies.

    It's simple. Blizzard is very good at what they do, and they are - to my knowledge at least, yet to make a game that isn't a huge success. I expected no less from Overwatch, although I don't like the game myself.

    I would say that the gameplay itself just caught the attention of many people. That and the number of memes that one could make with the game characters.

    Not the huge marketing budget but the difference is they introduced new model I mean with a great game play with good graphics and of course it was developed by Blizzard

    Overwatch become more popular and successful because of the high quality graphics and effects. Characters are unique and the game play itself is unique. It has a catchy set up that gamers can't resist.
