Roadhog Hook Bug

PTR Bug Report
In the current build, there is a bug where in Roadhog's hook will not pull enemies and he will be stuck in his animations, unable to move at full speed, activate abilities or use his gun

Based on some testing, I have found the following:
It appears to happen when the target of the hook is firing their weapon. Roadhog does not need to be taking damage from this shot.
:edit: Feeshy also mentions that activating abilities caused the hook to also bug out.
It is happening on multiple maps, not just Oasis.
It is happening across characters, no specific character is unhookable.
Roadhog is stuck like this until either character stops existing due to death or changing in spawn.
I had this happen to me twice just now on Oasis, once when a Genji was dashing at me and another time when a Winston was using his ult. I had to throw myself off the map both times just to get back to normal.
Just had this happen on Oasis also. It happened every time.
Confirming this. Just happened to me multiple times in Oasis. Hook gets stuck, and you can't use any abilities or even left/right click.

Interesting. So it might be just when they're doing anything at all then.

That's even more gamebreaking.
confirmed, happened to me as well on the oasis map.
Also happened to me on Oasis.
However it worked fine when we were in skirmish waiting for players
:edit: this was on Oasis:University, haven' tried the others yet
For me, on Oasis. One time with D.Va and once with Pharah. Seems both time the characters were moving. When not moving (on Pharah's ult) was able to hook.
I got pics of this myself.

Are you testing the hook2.0 ?
Is this what blizz promised on blizzcon, or just the old hook is bugged?
It just happened to me twice on Oasis. Both times, my target was close to being out of line of sight of me (once I hooked them, my hook would pass through whatever barrier it needed to stay hooked), so I wondered if it's a side effect of Hook2.0 changes?
Happened to me a few times now. He's unplayable in PTR ATM.
Hook 2.0 already working smoothly. Excellent testing Blizzard.
It also happened on the 1v1 3v3 ecopoint map
Confirmed, I was getting hooked as Hanzo while loading an arrow and the hook just got stuck on me.

Edit: Nvm, fixed already - http://us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/topic/20752217303
