Wondering about the Doomfist rework in Overwatch 2? We've got you covered.

Blizzard Entertainment announced that they are making big changes to Overwatch 2. Instead of six players on a team, there will only be five players on each team. That means there will be two damage heroes, two support heroes, and one tank. With tanks tasked to protect their whole team, their role is more significant than ever before. With these changes, Blizzard revealed that they are two major hero reworks coming to the tank class: Doomfist and Orisa.

Here's everything coming in the Doomfist rework.
