Blizzard has removed four maps from the “#Overwatch” map rotation. The maps will not be available in the #Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch modes of the popular first-person shooter game. The recent move is made by the game developer along with the rollout of the latest update released to the game’s PC version.

Aside from the maps, the latest Update also rolls out several bug fixes and improvements to the game. There are also tweaks made to provide balance to some of the heroes in the game, specifically Mercy. The most recent update in the PC version of the first-person shooter title will be released for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions soon.

Maps removed

In the official “Overwatch” forum, community manager Josh Engen shares details on the latest move from Blizzard. According to him, the maps have left the rotation in a small update. The community manager adds that for the game’s console version, the upcoming changes will arrive in a bulk update in the future.

Engen does not give any explanation as to why the maps are removed in the Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch modes of the game. The four maps recently removed are Horizon Lunar Colony, Temple of Anubis, Hanamura, and Volskaya Industries. The community manager does not provide any detail about when the maps will be available again in the Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch modes. Currently, players who are engaged in playing Custom Games can still access these maps.

Heroes tweaks

In addition to the removal of four maps in the rotation, Blizzard also made several tweaks to Mercy.

It appears that the game developer is still trying to balance the hero after the massive reworked done to her in the previous update. In addition, Mercy Resurrect’s credit that contributes to her on-fire meter has undergone several adjustments. This is in connection with the latest changes in the hero’s functionality.

The developer also fixed the bug that restricts the Ultimate of both Genji and Mercy from functioning properly every time the Oni Genji and Winged Victory Mercy are equipped. It is worth noting that earlier this week; Blizzard removed these two fan-favorite skins after several reports cited the skins to be the cause of the bug. Fans are hoping that they can now use the skins with the rollout of the most recent patch.

Blizzard has also rolled out general fixes and map fixes alongside the latest patch in “Overwatch.” The game’s UI has also received a new adjustment in terms of improving the spectator camera for better viewing experience. #Arcade Maps removed
