Overwatch is again in teasing mode.
Overwatch followers are puzzling over a brand new intel drop from Blizzard.
The developer has launched a brand new weblog and a sequence of photos associated to Horizon Lunar Colony, which went offline some years again, in keeping with Overwatch lore.
For these of you who haven’t pieced collectively Overwatch’s scattered storytelling, Horizon Lunar Colony was the place Lucheng Interstellar raised a sequence of genetically enhanced gorillas to be used in deep house testing. (Winston was, of course, one of these test subjects.) The colony went offline when the gorillas rose in rebel, and all contact ceased quickly after.
And now for the inevitable “till now“: in keeping with a brand new put up on the Overwatch blog, Lucheng Interstellar has revealed that the “the colony’s databases and monitoring methods are nonetheless up and working at the present time”.
“While no direct communication has been established with the facility, the company has successfully retrieved interpersonnel logs sent days and moments before the base lost contact with earth,” apparently. You can see these under.
Although the connection to Horizon Lunar Colony is unstable, Lucheng was additionally capable of retrieve a picture taken from the monitoring system. As you possibly can see, Winston isn’t the one specimen to be lacking. Where’s Hammond? You’ll discover his identify talked about within the messages above.
So what does this all imply? We’re fairly positive it’s a touch at a brand new Overwatch map set on the moon. That mentioned, Blizzard has additionally mentioned new Overwatch animated shorts are coming, and it’s attainable all that is construct as much as a brand new comedian difficulty, or another lore replace, since followers are at all times asking for extra story content material.
It appears unlikely we’d get teases for a brand new occasion whereas Blizzard is targeted on Overwatch Anniversary, and in any case the developer has mentioned we received’t see new occasions throughout Overwatch Year 2. Also, Blizzard has indicated we’ll only get about four new Overwatch heroes a year, so we’re not anticipating a second gorilla to hitch the solid, both.
(If there’s a new hero on the best way, and it’s house themed, please let or not it’s Cat In A Jetpack, Overwatch’s most mourned concept.)
Whatever it’s, we will nearly definitely anticipate an replace over the subsequent few days, since Blizzard has indicated it’s not keen on dragging out Overwatch teases prefer it did with Sombra’s ARG.
Anyway, maintain it locked to Overwatch; information is definitely inbound.
