After announcing the newest hero i.e. Rammatra, Blizzard has revealed that it has already gathered a total of 35 million players. A surprising result to say the least, especially since the title was released just a month ago.

At the same time, Blizzard also indicated that the multiplayer game has already recorded nice revenues for the fourth quarter of this year. As a reminder, the game is free, but the title also offers a store where players can buy many skins for their heroes.
