New Overwatch Leak
If it isn’t apparent already, Blizzard has hit a homerun with Overwatch. Since the game’s debut, Overwatch players have logged some seriously massive amounts of playtime. Within a few days of release the Overwatch player count was a whopping 7 million people already playing the title. Three weeks in, it hit the 10-million mark. Naturally, with its popularity, sexy Overwatch cosplay has become a thing at gaming conventions everywhere. Lately, Blizzard has been teasing Overwatch’s upcoming content but the developers have not released anything official yet. Today; however, we learned that plans for the game’s next hero and event have supposedly leaked online.
As seen in the image below, the leak claims that Overwatch’s next hero, Sombra, will be a female hacker with a background in Mexican gangs. With a lightweight physique and small submachine gun, Sombra is expected to be a faster-paced hero with hacking and covert, maybe stealth-like abilities.
Unfortunately, the original source has since been taken down; however, the Overwatch community has begun piecing together what remains of the leak. The exposed information focuses on what appears to be a part of the games upcoming update, including a limited-time Halloween event. The leaked image also refers to a new game mode, which pits players against ‘Zomnics and Dr. Junkenstein’s evil allies’. This is supported by a coinciding leak of an upcoming comic, which features a number of the game’s characters with Halloween-themed skins. This is likely a component of the rumoured Halloween update, which is expected to rollout in the coming weeks.
As always with leaks of this sort, you need to take it with a pinch of salt, but the Sombra artwork in particular seems pretty legit while matching both previous leaks and in-game teases.
What do you make of his leak? Let us know in the comments.
