Hi. Wow, what a thread! Just to clarify, we're leaving Orisa on the PTR for a little while. We're getting great feedback and fixing a lot of issues. I know this feels a little longer than other PTR periods, but we think it will be for the better. We know how anxious you all are to have Orisa join your ranks... and she will soon... but most likely she will go live later in the month rather than this early.


Story Related Content

Hey everyone! 

Like I said earlier, we have a lot in the works, with Orisa and her story being the first release of the year. One of our goals for 2017 is to try to have more frequent story-related updates and content, so we're very busy with that. 

And a little something else is coming just around the corner, so look out for it!
