Blizzard teased two Monitor 2 characters by the time the game releases on Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X later this year will be nerfed. The Monitor 2 beta has provided Blizzard with a ton of valuable feedback on the game’s various characters. The bulk of that feedback relates to Symmetra and Mercy, both of whom are borderline broken in their current form. That said, Blizzard heard that feedback and announced some changes for this pair of characters. They are not the only ones under the microscope, however. Blizzard also confirmed that Zenyatta and Sojourn may be subject to some adjustments in the future. For now, he doesn’t commit to it or say what could be changed, but he acknowledges that both are a bit too good at the moment.
While making a remark about the two characters. Blizzard also confirmed that they like the direction of the recent Roadhog Ultimate changes that came with the beta.
“There are other heroes we’re watching, like Zenyatta and Sojourn, that may need to be tuned up a bit before launch,” Blizzard said. “We like the direction of Roadhog’s ultimate changes in the beta, and are now working to make it more intuitive and polished.”
Blizzard continues, “The team will continue to work on these improvements until launch. In the meantime, you can expect some changes for Moira and Mercy in this upcoming mid-cycle patch! Please keep sharing your feedback and thoughts. This beta brings one step closer to launch, and we’re grateful that our community is involved in testing!”
