Overwatch 2 Mid-Season Patch Delayed, Leaving Mei Unplayable

Monitor 2The mid-season update was delayed at the last minute, leaving original hero Mei unplayable for now.

A post on the official forums confirmed that the patch has been pushed back due to an unexplained “critical issue” that was discovered shortly before it went live.

“Today’s patch is delayed as we are working to fix a critical issue,” Blizzard confirmed. “We will provide an update here and post the fix as soon as the issue is resolved.” The patch will now go live on November 17 at 11am PST, so Mei Mains won’t have too long to wait.

“We’re temporarily disabling Mei to fix a bug with her Ice Wall ability that allows heroes to reach unintended locations,” Blizzard said at the time. “We are working to resolve these issues as soon as possible and aim to bring Mei back in our next upcoming patch which is scheduled for November 15th.”

The delayed patch also includes other changes, including “upcoming balance changes, bug fixes, including those affecting Mei, and core content updates we have planned for this patch,” said Blizzard.

“This delay also impacts the delivery of Overwatch League Viewership incentives and benefits from post-season matches during the period of October 30 to November 4, as well as the rotation of cosmetics in the Overwatch League store. .” Daily and weekly challenges, as well as the usual refresh of the shop, continued as planned.

IGN’s Overwatch 2 review gave it 8/10 and said: “Monitor 2 breathes new life into what was once the sharpest multiplayer shooter, before it was severely dulled by Blizzard’s attention diverted.”
