Overwatch, c’mon. C’mon, Overwatch.
The Overwatch Sombra ARG timer ended right now, however should you had been hoping for a full reveal, properly – sorry.
Unlike Ana, who was teased after which launched in Overwatch shortly thereafter to the shock and delight of gamers, Sombra’s prolonged introduction doesn’t look more likely to finish any time quickly.
Here’s what occurred right now: the countdown timer uncovered by ARG sleuths back in August ticked over to finish, and the site up to date with a message suggesting Bastion has been compromised by Sombra. The ARG hounds scoured the positioning, however all they discovered was what seemed like an Overwatch replace reference.
As it occurs, there was a small Overwatch title replace launched on the identical time – and Overwatch gamers then observed some adjustments to Bastion’s victory pose. According to the Overwatch subreddit, on some skins it now blinks out the identify SOMBRA in Morse code.
And that appears to be it, to this point. Some Overwatch followers are a bit miffed by this; after a full month of anticipation, they had been anticipating one thing a bit extra important than yet one more path of crumbs.
It doesn’t assist that everybody is aware of what’s coming – these months and months of teasing have made it fairly clear that Sombra is an upcoming hero, and so the ARG has sort of misplaced its impression. And that was earlier than the discharge of Overwatch’s Halloween event lent quite a lot of credence to an alleged internal Overwatch memo leak featuring Sombra.
At this stage additional teasing is de facto not mandatory. Even with out the leak, Overwatch gamers knew she was coming. They’re excited for a brand new hero, however – they’re additionally sort of uninterested in Blizzard’s video games.
Sombra will most likely be introduced at BlizzCon subsequent month.
