While the new hero Orisa has been well-received in the PTR realm many are still disgruntled about how Blizzard released the robotic tank.
The lack of an animated short or comic to highlight the character was absent, especially when compared to Somba and Ana. One player created a post on the game's forum theorizing that the story was halted purposely because of Chris Metzen's retirement since he was a key figure in the creation of Blizzard story content for years.
Michael Chu, lead writer for Overwatch, went on to clarify the issue:
“Like I said earlier, we have a lot in the works, with Orisa and her story being the first release of the year. One of our goals for 2017 is to try to have more frequent story-related updates and content, so we’re very busy with that.”
Chu hinted that something else was coming and it wouldn't be long. This could be the video content that players have been demanding over. Perhaps a rematch between Doomfist and Orisa.
Unlike Ana and Sombra Orisa's release was handled with more care. Ana simply appeared, Sombra was dangled for in the front of players for months, but Orisa was released in a series of cryptic statements. However, her final reveal was a lackluster one, simply popping up in the PTR realm.
