Two things, if you are an Overwatch fan and second if you have trouble downloading large files, then you are going to be irritated with the next major Overwatch Update. And that is a fact because just recently the devs have given an update regarding this reinstall situation.

According to the devs, the next major Overwatch Update will be bringing quite a lot of changes and for such technical reasons, it would require you to reinstall the client, entirely.

Hey, folks,

We wanted to get ahead of this early and let you all know what to expect with our next big patch. We don’t currently have a release date/time with this but will update this thread once we do. The next major patch will have some pretty fundamental changes to the game client. The number of back-end changes we’re putting in is substantial enough that we can’t just patch over the current content efficiently. As a result, when the next patch comes out, the client will fully reinstall itself to handle these changes. We know that this isn’t ideal for people on metered connections, so hopefully, this announcement helps you prepare for this coming update. Thanks for your patience with this matter, and we’ll see you all in-game!

So those who have metered connections or issues of a similar sort, take this as a heads up. Having said that this update is expected to reach us by the end of November. However, no specific date has been provided.
