Brigitte is the latest hero that has arrived to Blizzard's hugely popular Overwatch, but if you've been itching to use her in competitive play, you'll be waiting a while, as developer Scott Mercer has taken to the game's forums to tell us she won't be landing there immediately.
"Starting with the releases of Blizzard World and Brigitte, we made the decision to debut new maps and heroes in Competitive Play at the beginning of the season that follows their release," he wrote. "This means that Brigitte will become available in Competitive Play when Season 10 begins, just as Blizzard World became available at the beginning of Season 9. This will help give each competitive season a stronger identity, as well as provide the community with plenty of time to learn how to play with new maps or heroes."
Do you agree with this reasoning, or would you rather see Brigitte go on there immediately?
