Blizzard began to let in the next Overwatch hero

As usual, developers introduce the new character with tiny pieces of story.

So far every year, we’ve got a new Overwatch hero around March, and it looks like it won’t be any different this year either. Blizzard has started to introduce the next character, and many are confident that the mysterious new character is none other than Echo. We’ve met the omnic lady before in the McCree short film and the Overwatch 2 trailer.

Since Blizzard hasn’t announced yet that Echo will only arrive with Overwatch 2, there’s actually a chance we’ll really get him this time around. This would also explain the content of the latest story piece, as in it Dr. Mina Liao writes about the soul and possibilities of the Omnic race if they can escape human domination. This recording was later followed by an audio in which we could hear the doctor in the middle of a panic situation. Something was wrong in the lab.
