​Genji has been one of the most popular heroes in Overwatch since the games debut, and has received little to no changes in his abilities. Game director Jeff Kaplan ​posted on the Overwatch forums Friday to reveal updates to his hitbox and VFX won't happen for at least another month.

​​Kaplan hasn't gone into anymore details about this change, but it seems like this won't affect Genji too much. In other words this doesn't seem like a nerf to the ability rather a general gameplay fix for Genji. 

Either way it is interesting to see that Kaplan and the development team are working on fixing different characters and ​buffing certain characters such as Sombra. These changes could affect the current Overwatch meta, and see a rise in underused characters.
