    I had an issue where sound in overwatch stopped working. I tried what I could find online, generally resetting game settings, doing a scan and repair, etc. Updated my audio drivers, checked the menu for volume per application in windows 10.

    Then I tried PTR, and sound worked in PTR. Was about to fully uninstall and re-install, but I had a feeling it was windows screwing around.

    The way I fixed it in the end, was to RENAME the overwatch executable to Overwatch2.exe and Overwatch Launcher2.exe. Fixed it right away. I'm sure its a stupid Windows issue which I'll fix later.. anyway for now. Its working!

    Further to this, I found that running the game from the exe itself, and not through battlenet's exe, then clicking overwatch, also helped, so perhaps the rename was not required.

    Fully reinstalling windows and the game worked as well.... #Time
