Overwatch Update Pulled Due To Hanzo Bug, Patch Notes Today & More

January 6, 2022

Overwatch received an all-new update today, but it seems like it didn’t go as one would have expected.

Firstly, the community was not at all happy with the release of the update. The update does make a number of changes to the Heroes in the game, but it caused an instant outrage in the community as many stated that most of the changes were unwanted and weren’t required to begin with.

Now things went further south after fans noticed that the update has been a total mess. Hanzo’s Storm arrows got a nice little tweak as they now ricochet upon impact, but it caused some other problems as well. After the update, Hanzo’s arrows are going through shields as well as Mei’s wall, which is totally not how it is supposed to function.

As a result, the update has been called back, and the developers have stated that there is no estimated time for the release of the update at this point. The developers have apologized for the patch and the changes have been reverted.
