This secondary ability is being replaced by Overload, which is similar to how his previous Ultimate, Molten Core, functioned.
Overload will provide a movement speed bonus, damage resistance, and a firing rate increase. As far as his new Ultimate goes, it will be keeping the name Molten Core, but will work much differently.
Torbjorn now tosses out liquid magma, creating pools on the ground that damages players in that area, as well as dealing extra damage to armored characters.
Additionally, turrets will no longer have levels, but will begin at its level two incarnation from start and remain there. When a turret is deployed, it goes through a short build time, and can be placed with a bit of a toss, enabling players to set up turrets in area they might not have been able to previously.
We might actually start seeing him being used more frequently outside of Quick Play. Players will be able to test out these changes in the PTR soon.
Shortly after discussing Torbjorn, Jeff briefly mentioned that hero updates are also in the works for Orisa, Soldier: 76, McCree, and Pharah, all of which are planned for completion on January 29 of next year.
The ability lasts for six seconds or until 10 lava blobs have been fired. Torb's Rivet gun has been tweaked a bit. On its primary fire, projectile speed has increased from 60 to 70 while reload time reduced from 2.
The alternate fire also has lower recovery and reload time, reduced spread, but lower total damage per shot. Functionality remains largely the same, but should be more consistent and overall do slightly more damage.
In addition to the Torbjörn rework, Kaplan said that minor changes would be coming to Orisa, Soldier: 76, Pharah, and McCree, though he was sparse on the details.
We'll have more info once the PTR patch notes are released. He also mentioned that more robust colorblind options are on the way.
Finally, Kaplan said that while Seasonal Events like the upcoming Halloween Terror event would continue to feature awesome cosmetic items, their event-specific game modes like Junkenstein's Revenge will largely remain unchanged for the forseeable future.
Instead of developing new game modes, Kaplan said the Overwatch team is focused on hero balance changes and quality-of-life fixes, like the Torb rework and the colorblind mode outlined here.

Bo Moore.Torbjorn's primary fire is objectively better in practically every scenario, so Blizzard is attempting to make his secondary fire the preferable option for close-range encounters with this change.
