Doomfist might not be the following Overwatch hero, teases recreation director

The 24th Overwatch hero is just not who thought they might be.


Since Sombra’s launch, and for a while after Overwatch launched, the sport contained many hints that Doomfist – a personality referenced in CG movies and in-game lore – goes to be the following hero.

These teases intensified with the latest PTR patch which included a big change to the payload model on Numbani. Said payload was transporting Doomfist’s gauntlet, and the up to date information revealed the protecting glass was about to be damaged.

The Overwatch neighborhood may be very satisfied, then, Doomfist is the sport’s subsequent hero. Who else is it going to be? Well, another person, apparently. According to recreation director Jeff Kaplan, the sport’s 24th hero is just not who we expect he’s.

Kaplan stated this on the official forums, however sadly didn’t elaborate additional. With that in thoughts, the director didn’t explicitly point out Doomfist in his reply. Still, it’s clear to see who he was speaking about right here, if a bit shocking.

Unless the following Overwatch hero is a methods off, Blizzard ought to most likely begin dropping hints about their id fairly quickly.
