Overwatch 2.17 update for next major event

By Alan Ng - Jul 31, 2017

Overwatch is the new fun shooter game from Blizzard that everyone is playing right now on PS4, Xbox One and PC. As expected, Blizzard has followed through with unwavering post-launch support but now we want to know your most requested feature for the next Overwatch update, which should be the Overwatch 2.17 update on PS4 and Xbox One.

Previous versions: Overwatch version 2.16 went live on July 27 in Europe and US, with Blizzard bringing new hero Doomfist (Offense) to the game as well as bringing the highly anticipated Loot Box updates as well.

What do you want to see changed or added for Overwatch patch 2.17 on console and Overwatch patch 2.0 on PC? Sometimes Blizzard do not reveal patch notes for their Overwatch updates, especially the smaller ones. However we’ll do our best to update you here whenever anything new goes live so always keep checking back and read through the comments section.


With over millions of players from the beta, the game has already fulfilled its potential to be one of the best games of 2016 especially with Blizzard updating frequently with support.

We’ll update this page when we have official news of regarding Overwatch 2.17 patch notes on PS4 and Xbox One so keep checking back at this page in the days ahead when Blizzard could reveal official information soon.

In the meantime, give us your experience of the game so far below and how you would improve it moving forward by participating in our Overwatch discussion section below.

Also let us know if Blizzard decides to jump ahead from Overwatch update 2.16 to 2.18 as we have seen this happen in the past.

    • Denny Malcolm

      Nothings wrong with the deflect.

      • Niall McCullough

        It isn’t to do with the deflect it’s to do with Dragonblade, the slash looks as if it connects while it does no damage to the target.

  • NgTurbo

    Next Overwatch update is just around the corner, will be adding 1.12 patch notes asap. Who’s excited for Sombra?

  • NgTurbo

    There has been a very sneaky Overwatch update overnight guys. 1.11 is now live on PS4 but it only contains bug fixes which Blizzard are not talking about yet. Sombra coming November 1??

  • NgTurbo

    Next Overwatch console update is almost here guys, added a link to the PTS patch notes which should reflect changes coming to PS4 and Xbox One.

  • NgTurbo

    Overwatch 1.09 is now live on PS4, just a few days on from 1.08. Added the patch notes above so far, any other noticeable changes guys?

  • NgTurbo

    Countdown is now on to the next update, which should be 1.09 on console. What does Blizzard need to do next guys?

  • Sam Adams

    Good week for gamers!! Fallout 4 expansion, new map for Overwatch, and 2 new open betas, with BF1 as one of them!

    • NgTurbo

      couldn’t agree more sam.. big uncharted 4 update as well if you play that

  • NgTurbo

    1.08 has just gone live on PS4 guys, added link to full patch notes.. tons of changes and big fixes to read through

  • NgTurbo

    Who’s excited about those new Reinhardt skins? They look amazing!


    When sombra blizzard

  • NgTurbo

    Hi guys, added the 1.07 console patch notes above..lots of bug fixes which you should appreciate. Anyone spotted anything else not mentioned?

  • NgTurbo

    So what does everyone think of Competitive Play? Be interesting to see how long it takes Blizzard to release 1.05

  • YourfavoriteMurdererAdamWest

    I just want the original tracer but pose, gotta see that ass

    • sphincterboy69

      butt has 2 T’s dumbass

  • OverTheWatch78

    I want to add in the next uptdate split screen on ps4

  • 我就是随便看看!

  • Jack W. Rabbit

    So where are these hero selection/end of game social options on ps4?

  • Cristian

    Wait so is widow maker and Mccree not being nerfed on the ps4?

    • UR mum

      Stfu kid

  • jakdripr

    The McCree and Widow nerfs are in this patch as well. No more dying to one button as Zarya vs a McCree. Funny though, the biggest part of the Widow nerf is probably not going to affect console players since we were all garbage with her anyway and barely anyone quick scoped.

  • jakdripr

    So are we just not going to get the McCree and Widow nerf on consoles? I was certain it’d be included in the competitive patch.

  • Itspho

    Why is torbjorn turret not being nerfed? I thought blizz was going to address this issue?

    • MatheusHSC15

      thats for the end of this month

      • Itspho

        Ok sweet! Ty! 😊

  • NgTurbo

        • Laytham

        • Caleb Santiago

          It must have fixed itself because I changed to the TV then back to the PS4 and it was done downloading

        • Heights

          Yes, I’m on PS4. My wife and I both have our own systems. Each system had the same 989.0 MB update file.
