While Overwatch’s 27th hero, Brigette is set to drop into the live servers in a couple days, we will have to wait a little longer before we are able to play her on competitive mode. Following a post by the Principal Designer at Blizzard, Scott Mercer, we now know that Brigette will only be available for competitive mode use in Season 10.
So when will it be, exactly?
We know Season 9 ends on May 13th 2018 and taking into account the standard one-week break of competitive play before the following season, we *should* see Brigette available on comp on May 20th 2018.
Too long of a wait perhaps? While we would certainly love to see her available during Season 9, it is understandable that Blizzard sought to have more players get accustomed to her before tossing her into ladder.
