Well, we have some good news for you as Geoff Goodman finally revealed the changes that will go live straight from the current PTR.
Overwatch PTR Major Updates

Overwatch PTR Changes That Will Go Live
According to Geoff Goodman, in the past weeks, most of the changes in the PTR were merely "experimental" as it's one of the biggest and most significant tweaks they've made in the game - bold enough that the lead developer himself and the team were not sure if the changes will ever go live. But with the enthusiasm and praise that the community has given to the latest changes, it would appear that most of the changes, if not all, will go live this month.
In one of the official community threads, Geoff Goodman clearly stated that they were surprised about how well the changes worked and implied the following updates that will go live; in the thead, he said: "At this point it looks like most or all of the changes are going to make it to live after all."
Based on the statement, we can clearly expect the upcoming changes that will go live. Note that these are just some of the major updates in PTR and so the live version is not limited to the changes which will be listed down below:
Pharah's nearly-unlimited flight capability
1-Hero-Limit In Quick Play
