Everyone’s playing Overwatch – even Elon Musk

Elon Musk has revealed that he’s a fan of Blizzard’s brilliant team FPS, Overwatch.

It feels as if everyone’s playing Overwatch at times, such is the buzz surrounding the game. In actual fact, it’s been confirmed that around 7 million players have played the game to date.

One of those 7 million people is Elon Musk.

You would think that the billionaire entrepreneur might be too busy for something as frivolous and time-destroying as a multiplayer FPS. After all, he has not one but two hot tech companies to run in Tesla and SpaceX, whilst still needing to find the time to consider the odds that we’re all living in The Matrix.

You’d be wrong, though:

Now, what do you suppose Musk’s favourite character is? The zen-like Zenyatta, perhaps? Or maybe the technical genius Torbjorn?
