Blizzard Teases New Overwatch Hero Or Map

Blizzard Teases New Overwatch Hero Or Map

Blizzard is already teasing the new character or map that will be coming to their popular shooter Overwatch, despite that it hasn’t been too long since the release fo the last new hero and map. Currently its just a mystery, but based on the teasers released before, we can expect various follow-up teases from Blizzard in the coming days.

The first teaser released by Blizzard on Twitter, only shows a short video and the words “Calm before the storm.” The video shows an alley with a variety of sprays and posters on the wall. Among these posters, there is one of Lucio, one calling for rights for Omnics, and another calling for “no robots.” It’s possible that there are some hidden clues in the video, but there’s nothing that immediately stands out.

Currently on the Overwatch PTR, people found some references to the new character in the updated Horizon Lunar Colony map, that sparked new speculations that it is possible that the new hero is Hammond, coming to the Overwatch roster.

Check out the teaser video released on the Overwatch official Twiiter page:

Gamespot said in an article on their website:

“With the references to Horizon and space, some have speculated that this could be leading to the reveal of Hammond, who is another Winston-type character and test subject. He’s a character we’ve heard of before, but Overwatch has not spent much time exploring his background.

As it stands, Overwatch has a total of 27 characters. The most recent of the bunch was Brigitte, a Support character who can can heal teammates, equip a barrier shield, and stun enemies. So far, Blizzard hasn’t given any indication of what to expect from the next character, nor do we know when they will be released. As always, though, any new addition to the roster has the chance to dramatically shake up the game, both for casual players and on the competitive/Overwatch League side.”

We can expect new characters for Overwatch to continue to roll out, as Blizzard doesn’t seem keen on moving on to an Overwatch 2. “What people might not realize is the team now is significantly bigger than what it was when we shipped the game, and we have put all of that into working on the live game and the new maps, heroes, and events like Anniversary,” the studio said recently. “At least for the time being, [supporting Overwatch] is our focus right now, and we’re excited to work on this game.”
