Mei Returns To Overwatch 2 On November 17

Nov 16, 2022 · 16


It took Blizzard only a few weeks after the launch of Overwatch 2 to disable Mei as a playable character due to a bug that could provide unfair privilege, but now the time has come for the beloved Mei to return to Overwatch 2 after some new adjustments that are yet to be revealed.

Yesterday, Blizzard was supposed to launch a mid-season update that would bring back Mei to Overwatch 2 as well as add some new content, however, the developer posted a new statement revealing that the team had to delay the update after facing a critical issue. Now, Blizzard has confirmed that the issue has been resolved, and fans can expect the mid-season patch to arrive on November 17 at 11 am PST or 2 pm EST.

Unfortunately, the developer has not revealed the official patch notes yet, which means we don't know anything about the balance changes coming with the new update, but you can rest assured that players will no longer be able to exploit Mei's wall. Previously, the exploit would allow a combination of Mei and Kiriko to exploit a bug in Mei's wall that would allow Kiriko to take advantage of the geometry issues in the game to damage players from below without getting hits (courtesy of PC Gamer).

Earlier next month, Overwatch 2 Season 2 content will be available, as the developer previously revealed that each season lasts for 9 weeks. The new season will introduce Ramattra as a brand-new Tank hero. Unlike the first season's new heroes, Ramattra will not be available right after Season 2 launch, and players will need to make progress through the new Battle Pass to unlock it. Moreover, you can expect a new map and some new skins coming to the game during the next season.

Overwatch 2 recently managed to reach over 25 million players in almost a month after its launch, which is a huge achievement for the series, but it remains unknown how things will continue in the future, regarding the fact that today marks the launch of Warzone 2.0, which could affect the number of players in every free-to-play title, including Overwatch 2.
