2.8 being added to competitive?

I am at work and i had the live stream on, but it kept cutting in and out. Did they say that they are adding 2.8 to the competitive playlist next week after the new orleans event? I REALLY hope that is what i heard.

Within the next 1-2 months. Them saying next week was a troll because they know they are not going to be able to stick to that deadline
