Some of the biggest changes to enter Overwatch aren't new heroes or maps added to the game, but the hero reworks. Symmetra's second rework went live last month, and Blizzard is already working on a Torbj

If the definition of rework (in Overwatch) is to make changes to a hero's kit that removes, adds or alters an ability, then plenty of Overwatch heroes had reworks -- though they range from minor to major.
Symmetra was the first Overwatch hero to be reworked, just a few months after the game was launched. Although Bastion, Reaper and Roadhog didn't receive new abilities, theirs were altered, giving minor but important changes to the way the heroes could be played. D.Va gained Micro Missiles, which worked in her favor. Mercy's rework gave her a different ultimate, Valkyrie, and Hanzo received an interesting rework that removed his Scatter Arrow.
After Blizzard reworked Symmetra a second time, it revealed it is working on Torbj
Sombra's rework makes her feel sluggish. In theory, her new infinite Stealth and Translocator should work in her favor, but the changes don't do anything for the complaints of Sombra players. Instead of focusing on her bugs, Blizzard decided to change parts of her kit that didn't need any adjustments.
