Is Overwatch Teasing A New Map Or A Potential New Hero?

Adjust Comment Print

Blizzard Entertainment appears to be hinting at the arrival of a new hero for Overwatch, according to the game's fictional Atlas News outlet. My suspicion is that we'll be getting a new Horizon Lunar Colony map soon.

"The developer today posted the image below on social media with the caption, "[BREAKING UPDATE] For the first time in years, new details emerge about possible fate of Horizon Lunar Colony".

A map of the Horizon Lunar Colony (where Winston was created) and an email exchange between the scientists that lived there have been released. Another "smaller" specimen named Hammond was also listed by the corporation.

One of the emails calls out a specific subject by name: Hammond. The latter is apparently a "smaller test subject", meaning he might not be the brutish tank that Winston is.

Blizzard may be teasing the first look at a new Overwatch hero, and it might be a gorilla.

Lucheng Interstellar has released the first image of the Horizon Lunar Colony's monitoring systems, showing that seven specimens are still alive and well in the facility, along with several scientists, through a lot of them are huddled close to each other.

With the recent free weekend offered to newcomers, more players than ever have been enjoying 'Overwatch's recent anniversary event.

With the game's customizable settings in custom lobbies, you can personalize everything from the ability cooldowns to the health pool of each individual hero.
