As for support characters as a whole, Blizzard also detailed how it plans to address community concerns about the role’s overall vulnerability and lack of variety compared to tanks and damage-dealers.


“Longer term, we believe the most effective way to tackle this issue is to add exciting new support heroes to the game, and that is part of our plans,” a Blizzard blog explained earlier this week. “In the near term, our hero design team is also experimenting with significant, but shorter lead time, ideas including new and refreshed abilities for some existing support heroes.”

The blog adds, however, that any major changes that may be coming to support heroes will probably miss this current beta test.


Overwatch 2’s closed beta is ongoing and scheduled to run through May 17.
