Overwatch’s New Character, Orisa, Gets A Release Date

The newest addition to the Overwatch roster arrives in a week’s time, Blizzard announced today.

Orisa will be out for all platforms on March 21. Blizzard shared the news alongside a new behind-the-scenes video (below) discussing the creation of Orisa, who is intended to serve as an “anchor” Tank-class character.

She’s been available on the public test realm over the past few weeks. She’s had a longer-than-usual stay there, something that director Jeff Kaplan said “will be for the better.” Indeed, she’s already changed once since being introduced, with her weapon damage and Ultimate both being nerfed.

You can read more about her abilities and see her skins here.

We don’t know what else will be included in the Orisa update, but among the other changes we’ve recently seen on the PTR are a nerf for Ana and further changes to Bastion.
