‘Overwatch’ now has over 15 million players

It’s safe to say that Blizzard Entertainment’s foray into first-person shooters has been a successful one. After surpassing 7 million players in just over a week, Overwatch has seen that number double and now has 15 million people charging their ultimates. The news comes just days after Blizzard introduced its Olympic-themed “Summer Games,” which lets players buy sporting skins, sprays and other in-game items for their favorite characters.

With Warcraft now taking the Hollywood route (although a new expansion is coming), Overwatch is proving it’s more than capable of building a sizeable community. World of Warcraft reached 12 million players at its peak, but Blizzard’s first ever shooter has the advantage of being available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

With players logging 500 million hours (71 of them mine) in the game so far, Blizzard is keen to build on that momentum by releasing new content throughout the year. Earlier this month, the game got its first new player — a healing sniper called Ana — but gauging from the easter eggs included in the new Summer Games release, we may soon learn who the mystery “Sombra” is.

‘Jessica Jones’ season 2 reaches Netflix on March 8th

To say that the second season of Jessica Jones has been a long time in coming would be an understatement. Netflix premiered the first season of the investigator-turned-superhero show in November 2015, and it committed to a second season at the start of 2016. At last, though, it's nearly here: Netflix has posted a trailer confirming that season 2 will premiere on March 8th, 2018. The preview hints that the new season will dive deeper into Jessica's nebulous past, and that she continues to take no crap -- there's a not-so-subtle dig at Spider-Man, for one thing.

The return helps flesh out Netflix's Marvel catalog, which still includes a number of single-season shows (although they almost all have commitments for more episodes). Also, it's arguably one of the more anticipated Marvel releases to date. In addition to starring an unconventional superhero, the first Jessica Jones season tackled serious topics like gaslighting and sexual assault with an intelligence you wouldn't necessarily expect. If that keeps up in the second season, it could be worth watching even if you don't normally care for comic-inspired programming.
