Thank you for your understanding, we will work on releasing this patch as soon as possible. Follow our forums and social media on @PlayOverwatch for updates.

While the “Main Content Updates” and Overwatch League items are notable, the patch delay is most pressing for fans of Mei, who were unable to play as the character (but not pay $10 for skins) after being taken out of rotation at the end of last monthsaying at the time:

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