Blizzard is obviously intending to discharge a fix for Overwatch so gigantic, you can’t download and introduce it like a standard update. An organization delegate has posted a notice on its group, advising players to plan for a gigantic rollout that will drive the customer to completely reinstall itself.
The rep said it will bring some really generous back-end changes to Overwatch, and Blizzard couldn’t figure out how to motivate it to install over the present variant of the game.
Lamentably, that implies you must choose the option to figure out how to make it function in the event that you have a capped connection. Blizzard doesn’t have a discharge date for the update yet – the organization just issued an early notice, in all probability since a few users may create an uproar in the event that they abruptly need to reinstall an entire game when they were only expecting a patch fix. When the gaming giant reports a date and time, you may want to plan accordingly and schedule your other downloads for a later date.
Here’s the company’s announcement in full:
“We wanted to get ahead of this early and let you all know what to expect with our next big patch. We don’t currently have a release date/time with this, but will update this thread once we do.
The next major patch will have some pretty fundamental changes to the game client. The number of back-end changes we’re putting in is substantial enough that we can’t just patch over the current content efficiently. As a result, when the next patch comes out, the client will fully reinstall itself to handle these changes. We know that this isn’t ideal for people on metered connections, so hopefully this announcement helps you prepare for this coming update.
Thanks for your patience with this matter, and we’ll see you all in game!”
