It looks as if Symmetra is about to be buffed in November after Overwatch November update details were revealed. The news comes after Jeff Kaplan had an interview with Business Insider. He is the director of Overwatch. Previously, some audio files were data mined in the Overwatch PTR servers and it revealed new audio tracks for each character. There’s no news about the rumored Sombra character yet but we’ll let you know when that happens.
Overwatch November Update – Symmetra might become OP soon
“Changes to Symmetra are definitely on our list. But I don’t think we’ll see a change go live until probably some time in November.
You know, Symmetra’s a really interesting hero to talk about. She’s one of our least-played heroes, [but] you have to read the stats with a little grain of salt there: She’s a hero who’s very situational and she actually gets played a fair bit, but she gets switched off of. What happens commonly is players will play her on defense on the first part of a point, and then when they’ve lost that point, then they’ll switch off of Symmetra. So, that definitely impacts her play time when you’re looking at the stats.
Now, a character being that situational is not really desirable to us, so even though I can kind of justify why it happens, that doesn’t mean that I believe that it’s right. So Symmetra is a hero who’s on our list right now to take a good look at and really investigate.”
She is a hero we’d like to make some changes to. I think those changes wouldn’t see the light of day until November, though, because we want to do a bunch of internal testing. It’s one thing when we do something [minor] — like, we have a change to Junkrat on the [Public Test Realm] where his Ultimate activates faster, but it’s a very incremental, safe change — whereas the type of changes we think need to happen to Symmetra require a lot more internal testing and discussion.”
