Howdy, folks!

We hope everyone has been enjoying themselves playing and keeping up with the Overwatch 2 Beta! We’ll have more in-depth updates next week, but there are a few things we wanted to address before then.

Symmetra’s Teleporter range has not been reduced as stated in the initial patch notes. The decision to keep her range came in pretty close to the beta, but her Teleporter range remains the same as it was prior to the beta at 30. This is now reflected correctly in the patch notes.

We’ve seen some feedback and thoughts on Mercy’s Guardian Angel changes, and this is something we plan to address next week. There will be updates to this ability in an upcoming mid-cycle patch.

Finally, we wanted to be completely transparent about when we’ll be patching the beta. Due to some tech limitations, it’s going to take a little longer before we can work in our planned changes across all platforms. However, there will be a mid-cycle patch including changes to Mercy and Moira.

In the meantime, we’re continuing to look for community feedback, so please keep sharing your thoughts with us.

Thank you for being a part of this testing phase and GLHF!

We just published a dev blog that goes a little more in depth on this post!

I know! I wish we could have, too. We were unfortunately unable to patch as frequently as we did in the previous beta.

These changes are coming to the beta soon! I am so excited for y’all to try out the Mercy and Moira changes.

There have been a lot of changes in OW2 that affect Symmetra-- like 2CP being removed, one less tank per team, less barriers, and an overall more offensive, aggressive playstyle.

With these testing iterations, our goal is to make her feel more natural in Overwatch 2’s ecosystem. That being said, we recognize that this previous change wasn’t helping us achieve our goal, so we’re starting to test some different things internally.

She means a lot to us, too, and we will share more with you soon!
