Overwatch’s newest hero Brigitte has officially arrived and is playable on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. As a response to her addition as 27th character, Two Overwatch heroes Mei and Reaper will be buffed as is stated by Overwatch lead designer Geoff Goodman.
In a Q&A on the Overwatch forum, Goodman revealed that OW fans can expect Mei and Reaper to be buffed in the upcoming PTR patch, which is "hopefully" releasing sometime this week.
This is what Goodman answered to an Overwatch player asking about the current meta and how it may change with Brigitte's release-
"We’re always trying to get ahead of the meta and trying to predict what shifts are likely to take place. In this case, we’re seeing some potential for a big tank meta on the horizon, especially with Moira just recently being released and how good she is at healing multiple tanks.
We’ve actually had this sort of metagame in the past and overall it seemed often seemed more frustrating for players than even dive can be sometimes. So as a direct answer to your question I’d certainly be worried about buffing heroes like Roadhog, Zarya, and even Ana until we can get a better gauge on how the game is shifting.
In fact, we’re looking at buffing Reaper and Mei in an upcoming PTR patch (hopefully this week) since they could use a boost and they could help with this meta if it comes around."

With the confirmation of Reaper and Mei buffs, it’s only a matter of time until we see them live on the PTR. We aren’t up with the details about the changes and the type of buff, but they sure are likely to be awesome. Let’s wait and see for ourselves.
