Blizzard has revealed that it has no plans to make sweeping balance changes to Overwatch 2‘s heros throughout the game’s first season. Revealed in a post-launch developer blog update, the studio has stated that it is seeing every hero have a win rate of between 45% and 55%.
Even the newest addition to the Overwatch 2 roster, Kiriko, saw her win rate stabilise around 48% to 52% after an initial spike of a 75% win rate when the game launched.
The only exception to the plan of not changing heroes for the time being is Zarya, who will be seeing a chance in the Total Mayhem game mode.
Season 2 is set to see some balance changes, however, with the developer stating that the goal of the changes to ensure that Overwatch 2 feels balanced and fair while still giving each season its own identity.
Overwatch 2 has seen quite a bit of success, with the studio having recently revealed that the game saw 25 million players in its first ten days since release.
Overwatch 2 is available for free on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch. For more details, check out our review.
