Sorry folks - I was referring to our next client update patch, which is a lot different than today’s hotfix balance update. Expect it to land later next week, but no guarantee on that timing.

Greetings heroes,

As we prepare for Season 11, we’ve taken the time to evaluate a variety of game modes based on how much they are being played. Hero Mastery Gauntlet was intended to bring the high score-chasing excitement of Hero Mastery missions into a multiplayer format. Unfortunately, it hasn’t resonated with players in the ways that we hoped. With this in mind, we have decided to discontinue Hero Mastery Gauntlet as a permanent mode, and it will not be available to play starting in Season 11.

Players have until the end of Season 10 to complete the Lifetime Challenges for Hero Mastery Gauntlet and compete on the mode’s Top 500 leaderboards.

Thanks to all of you who jumped into the Gauntlet. If you are still looking to improve your hero skills, Individual Hero Mastery Solo Courses will continue to be available, and there will be more Hero Mastery Solo Courses coming in upcoming seasons. We’ll see you in-game!

Update 2 - The Mythic Shop is back online but some players may encounter an issue where trying out a Mythic Skin doesn’t work as intended in the Practice Range. We plan to permanently fix the issue in a future patch.

Update - We have now reenabled Mythic Skins to be equipped again in matches. We are still keeping the Mythic Skin shop disabled as we continue to work on the overall issue, and we’ll update here again when the shop is open to unlock Mythic skins. Thanks for your patience!

Original Post

We are temporarily disabling all Mythic Skins as we investigate an issue discovered in today’s patch that is leading to crashes or disconnections from various matches when those skins are equipped. If you currently have any Mythic Skins equipped, you may find your heroes reverted to the default Overwatch 2 skin in your next game. You can still equip any Rare, Epic, or Legendary skin. We have also disabled the Mythic Shop until we can resolve this issue. ...
