During an interview with Inven Global, Tim Ford lead software engineer for Overwatch has confirmed some major changes to the game. One of them being that Symmetra will be turned from a support hero to a defense hero by this summer.
We are discussing the change right now, and although we can’t tell you the details of each change, we would still like to let you know it will be a fairly dramatic change. One thing we can tell you is that Symmetra will turn from a support hero to a defense hero after the remake. Our aim is to make the usage of Symmetra even more flexible from it.
