Blizzard Entertainment (BLIZZARD) announced on November 16 the postponement of the update that was scheduled to be distributed today for Overwatch 2.
Overwatch 2 is an online match FPS game handled by Blizzard. It was released on October 5 as a basic play free title as a sequel to Overwatch, which gained popularity. As a change from the previous work, the existing hero adjustment and the addition of a new hero were carried out. The number of competitors has changed from 6 to 6 to 5 to 5.
For this work, the update distribution on November 16 Japan time was scheduled. BLIZZARD announces the postponement of the update scheduled to be distributed today in the official forum. In today’s patch, adjustments for D.VA/Maria/Genii/Samba/Kirk were expected to be implemented. Furthermore, May, which had been restricted due to a bug on November 1, was scheduled to return to today’s patch (related article 1, related article 2).
The reason for the postponement is explained as we are working on serious solutions. In the future, it will be reported on the forum on the forum, and the patch will be delivered as soon as the problem is solved. The distributed patches include balance adjustments, corrections of May’s defects, and in-game content updates.
Due to the postponement of this patch distribution, the distribution of benefits for viewers in the overwatch league held from October 30 to November 4 will be postponed. The lineup update of decorative items on sale at to overwatch league shop will be postponed.
