First time seeing both teams' timer banks reduced to 2 mins each, after my team and the enemy team captured both points in both rounds with 5 mins left in both teams' timer banks

Recently when I was in a comp match with my friend in the PC version of Overwatch, when my team and the enemy team captured both points in both rounds with 5 mins left in both team’s timer banks, the timer banks reduced to 2 mins each from round 3 onwards. Is this normal? This is my first time seeing this mechanic.

The gameplay clip which the mechanic is used:

Yeah, if both teams have excessive time they both get the same amount of time trimmed off to keep matches from running unreasonably long.

U mean this mechanic has been implemented since season 1?

I don’t think so, but I don’t remember where I read it. I’ll try and find it again

This was implemented on 12 March, 2020.
