Overwatch 2 Developers Provide Exciting Details on Sombra’s Upcoming Rework

Sombra, one of Overwatch’s most intriguing and controversial heroes, is set to receive a significant rework in the highly anticipated Overwatch 2. The developers have recently shared some exciting details regarding the changes players can expect in Sombra’s revamped gameplay.

Since her introduction as the second post-launch hero in the original game, Sombra has captivated players with her unique abilities, including cloaking, teleportation, hacking, and turning off enemy players’ skills. 

However, her kit has also been frustrating for many, leading to a desire for adjustments and improvements. Acknowledging Sombra’s current state, the Overwatch 2 development team has been hard at work crafting a rework that aims to make her more engaging and lethal while addressing some of the concerns raised by the community. 

Although the exact release date of the rework has not been confirmed, the developers have provided insights into what players can expect. During a recent Twitch [1] stream, Overwatch 2 Executive Producer Jared Neuss joined content creator Emongg to discuss various aspects of the game, including upcoming heroes and Sombra’s rework.
