According to Symmetra's Overwatch 2 lore, Suravasa is her birthplace. Suravasa is also the location of Aurora's temple and a statue of the omnic. According to the "Stone by Stone" short story, Zenyatta once invited Symmetra to stay there to learn about omnic history.

"In Junk City, for example, you can actually see Junkertown in the vista," McGowan said during a livestream. "We've tried to give some kind of connection to those and call back to the original map because it was so influential."
