Overwatch's Torbjorn character is being nerfed--but not so soon.
Game director Jeff Kaplan said in a Reddit thread titled "Torbjorn is utterly ruining the game on PS4" that a patch next month will reduce the character's effectiveness substantially.
The update will come out in "mid to late July," Kaplan said. The exact timing will depend on certification processes from Sony and Microsoft.
Torbjorn is a defense-focused character. His arsenal includes a rivet gun and a hammer. As mentioned, he can also build upgradeable turrets--but they won't be as deadly for much longer.
