A few days back, I was talking about how often, Blizzard kept teasing the arrival of a new character to Overwatch. It has happened yet again.
Last time, the focus was on a young girl scientist, Efi Oladele, who was thought to be the next character in Overwatch. You can read the full story here. This time, Blizzard teased by updating the public test version of the game. The tease was spotted after the Numbani map underwent some changes.
The map had two significant changes. The first change is in the spawn room for the attacking team. There, you can see the aftermath of the attack. Take a look at the first 3 pictures below.
In another part of the map, you will find changes in the payload cart. The glass containing Doomfist’s gauntlet has been smashed open and nothing is left inside of it. Check the last three images above.
Hence, as you would have guess by now, the speculation goes that Doomfist might be the next Overwatch character. During the summit, Jeff Kaplan went on to say, “It is not who you think it is”.
Assumptions remain as plain theories and only time can transform them to facts.
