Blizzard is focusing on support heroes for Overwatch 2’s release and beyond

In a surprise AMA on June 22, Blizzard revealed that the Overwatch 2 development team has a lot of plans in mind for support heroes.

As reported by PCGamesN, support heroes, in particular, are “a focus” for the team as the game approaches its Oct. 4 early access release. Several existing support heroes are getting adjustments to their abilities to help them fit into the new five-vs-five format better and to broaden the range of playstyles that supports offer.
