In a developer post on the Overwatch 2 forums, Blizzard acknowledged an issue related to the latest patch that causes crashes and disconnections when Mythic skins are used in online matches. 

This is what the statement said:

"We are temporarily disabling all Mythic Skins as we investigate an issue discovered in today’s patch that is leading to crashes or disconnections from various matches when those skins are equipped.

If you currently have any Mythic Skins equipped, you may find your heroes reverted to the default Overwatch 2 skin in your next game. You can still equip any Rare, Epic, or Legendary skin.

We have also disabled the Mythic Shop until we can resolve this issue. You can still continue to collect Mythic Prisms in the Premium Battle Pass.

We will update this post when we know more. Leaver Penalties have been waived from any previous match instance since this issue began. Thank you for your understanding, and we apologize for any inconvenience."

As a precautionary measure, the company has temporarily disabled the ability to equip Mythic skins or purchase new ones from the Mythic Shop.

Despite the temporary unavailability of Mythic skins, players still can continue to collect Mythic Prisms through the Premium Battle Pass. This way, players can still progress towards unlocking more Mythic skins once the issue is fixed.

Additionally, Leaver Penalties will not be imposed on players affected by the bug, as their disconnection or crash is due to factors beyond their control.
