It’s time for them to analyze all the data they received from the beta testers.
Blizzard’s online shooter Overwath will put its closed beta on hold on December 10 9AM PST. This allows them to review all the data provided by the players from their gameplay, feedback and suggestions in making the game balance. But fret not, as they will only be taking a break for a month as they will resume the beta test around mid to late January.
For more of your most asked questions, the Overwatch team provided an FAQ portion:
