Source: Blizzard Entertainment

The live PC version of Overwatch got a new patch update, version 1.5.0.2, on Wednesday afternoon. Those of you hoping it brought Symmetra's reworked abilities or the new Oasis control map will be left disappointed — but it did usher in some important new bug fixes. The patch should hit PS4 and Xbox One versions of Overwatch soon.

Here are the full patch notes from Blizzard's forums:
