Free Weekend. So soon after the last one. For what reason?

General Discussion
Because so many players(including Mercy mains) quit game?
In last year we haven't same.
holiday season coming up. They want Overwatch on peoples holiday gift lists.
Didn't we get a free weekend last year after Blizzcon? I wouldn't be surprised if it was scheduled from the beginning

That sure is a Game Theory.
Why did mercy mains quit?
Blizzcon finishing and christmas incomming. Perfect marketing timing.
They usually do it when a new hero is introduced. The last time they did it when doomfist was released.
Technically wouldn't more Mercy mains play considering how broken she is now?

She is ruined.
As much as I'd like that they're taking notice of Mercy players being disappointed with the direction the game is going, I get the feeling that's not the case here, and if that was their concern they'd change how they're approaching nerfs rather than a free weekend.
Battlefront 2 comes out the same day
They'll probably release Moira during the free weekend.
I've seen some advertisements saying that you can "play all 26 characters for free".
