After having disabled Mei as part of the Overwatch 2 roster because of exploits, Blizzard was slated to bring the Hero back in an update today. The studio, however, has pushed the update back after discovering a “critical issue” moments before releasing the update.
According to a statement on the game’s forums, the studio said that the delay in the update also affects the delivery of Overwatch League Viewership Incentives and Perks from the post-season matches that took place between October 30 and November 4.
“Today’s patch is delayed as we work to resolve a critical issue,” said the statement. “We’ll provide an update here and set the patch live as soon as the problem is addressed.”
The update to Overwatch 2 that would bring back Mei has now been pushed back to November 17.
Mei was originally disabled earlier this month when players discovered that her Ice Wall ability could allow players to reach parts of the map that weren’t intended for players to be able to access.
Overwatch 2 is available for free on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch. Check out our review.
