Overwatch Possibly Teasing a New, Rolling Hero

Overwatch Possibly Teasing a New, Rolling Hero

At least, that's what I think it is.

Is Blizzard teasing a new hero in Overwatch? Well, they're certainly teasing something and with only two micro-teasers so far, it's hard to tell exactly what's going to happen in Overwatch. Only that something is coming, and it's related to some kind of...boulder?

Today, Overwatch's official Twitter account revealed a new teaser that's only slightly more interesting than its last teaser. It shows the same, mysterious alleyway from last week, but this time rolling orb rolls through the video. Then the teaser ends.

What could it mean? I'm not sure, but it might be a new map or an attack belonging to a new hero. It might event be the new hero itself, one that can roll through a map as an orb.

Online speculation suggests that the next hero reveal could be for Hammond, a fellow animal on the Horizon Lunar Colony that was experimented on, just like Winston. The previous cryptic messages from Blizzard seemed to point to the missing Hammond as a mystery that players should focus on. Of course, could really say based on these small hints anyways?

Overwatch's hero roster is currently sitting comfy at 27 heroes. Brigitte is the most recent addition, but she's likely not the last. For more on Overwatch's many heroes check out our complete Overwatch guide for the latest tips, hero info, and more.
