Rumor: Blizzard will unveil new Overwatch Hero on Monday

Developer Blizzard Entertainment may reveal a new Hero for this coming Monday Overwatch.

The rumor arose thanks to an advertisement from a French cinema chain. A poster for a special Overwatch event indicates that, among other things, a new character for the game will be revealed.

User Nirolak on the internet forum NeoGAF has since made a compilation of all the information referring to a new Hero. For example, it is speculated that the character is a female support hero called Sombra.

This name comes from a number of newspaper clippings in the Dorado folder. The character Reaper also mentions her by name in an in-game quote.

In addition, images of a masked character with a sniper rifle have been found in the Route 66 map. Blizzard used a similar method in the past to reveal the Hero D.VA. However, the studio has not yet responded to the new rumors.

Overwatch will be released on May 24 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Derek’s preview of the PlayStation 4 version of Overwatch can be found on the site.
