Overwatch is currently conducting a different PTR right now. Blizzard intends to experiment with various builds and warned that some of the changes may not be carried over to the regular game.

Overwatch Heroes - Balanced and Nerfed

Overwatch Community Manager Josh Engen enumerated some significant information about the ongoing Public Test Realm or PTR. Some of the heroes received a boost while others got nerfed. Overwatch players have mixed reactions to the experimental hero build. It is important to note however, that these PTR changes may or may not be implemented. In the end, players' feedback can carry a lot of weight too.
