Cowboy, Doomfist, Moira, Orisa, and Sigma are all reportedly being reworked in advance of Overwatch 2's launch according to a clip from professional Overwatch main tank Super of the San Francisco Shock.

Super provided fans with this information as he discussed the play-testing of Overwatch 2 and what aspects of the game pro players were and weren't able to test during the playoffs during his streams.

"We didn't get to play Orisa, Sigma, Doomfist, [Cowboy], Moira like, I guess cause [Blizzard] is reworking all those characters." A plethora of heroes will be reworked in advance of Overwatch 2 to make each more viable, the announcement came from Blizzard during Saturday's Overwatch League Grand Finals.

While no information about the reworks Super mentioned exists, two reworks have already been confirmed for Overwatch 2. Sombra and Bastion will both receive reworks in Overwatch 2 that were revealed on Saturday, Oct. 25, during the Overwatch League Grand Finals.

Sombra will be receiving major upgrades to her hacking arsenal as well as her cloaking ability, a full breakdown of her rework can be found here. Bastion, will similarly be receiving a rework which allows him to play in a more flexible manner but will come at the cost of some key features, a full breakdown of the Omnic's rework can be found here.

All Overwatch fans can do about these purported reworks is speculate, at least until word comes from Blizzard. More information about Overwatch 2 will undoubtedly be released in the coming months so make sure to stay tuned!
