TWITCH KING XQC BREAKS VIEWERSHIP RECORD THANKS TO OVERWATCH 2 BETA

WHAT HAPPENED?

Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel isn’t called the King of Twitch lightly, and on Overwatch 2’s beta release he showed why.

The former pro managed to juice more than 300,000 peak viewers to break his personal record, all thanks to the Blizzard shooter’s test release.

The last time xQc had an audience of more than 200,000 viewers at once was way back in April 2020 during Valorant’s launch.

Overwatch itself also experienced an unprecedented boom off the back of the sequel’s beta launch on Twitch. The title peaked just shy of 1.5 million viewers.
