New Overwatch 2 Hero Release Date

As we know, Blizzard will release a new hero every other season. Since Ramattra will be released with the second season in December, this support hero will join the hero roster with the launch of season 4 in April next year. But it's about time that we get some more supporters in the game, because the selection that is currently available is just poor, sorry.

Hopes Up For Supporters

One of the biggest problems in Overwatch 2, is that support heroes are far too disliked by the majority of players, leading to very long queue times. This is due to the fact that supporters are simply not sufficiently protected in the game. Many people have problems with support heroes not being reliable enough or not being observed and protected by their teammates. In the worst cases, supporters even face toxicity and insults for "not doing enough".

Blizzard is now trying to make the support role more attractive, by releasing Ramattra, a new tank hero that is well-equipped to protect his teammates. Hopefully the next support hero for the fourth season of Overwatch 2 will be more reliable.
