Overwatch 2 Season 10 patch notes

According to the Overwatch 2 Season 10 patch notes, Venture will enter the game and immediately be available for competitive play. This will be a major change because in the past, Overwatch 2 did not allow new heroes to join its ranked game mode right away. However, thanks to the Venture trial, the new hero will be ready at the launch of Season 10.
