"It's not who you think it is" must mean Terry Crews at this point. That or Doomfist is involved with the other new character coming out.

The worst thing that could come from this is another bait and switch like Ana/Sombra.

An artifact that was part of the escort mission in the map has been stolen. It's tied to one of the new characters coming called Doomfist.

It means you'll soon be playing as greatest villain Doomfist voiced by Terry Crews (one hopes).

Cool, thanks. Now I feel dumb for not noticing the gauntlet was there in the first place.

This is a pretty telling hint, but I recall a post from one of the devs saying that "24 isn't who you think it is".

My brain didn't register that as a broken glass case; I thought it was a jet engine.

Kaplan said 'it's not who you think it is' but I think that's a red herring

I'm honestly hoping for two heroes at once, Doomfist and someone else like Efi.

All Jeff said was #24 is not who you think it is. They could do a 2 simultaneous release doomfist #25

Now after Doomfist who is the next character?

All we can assume is it's either Athena robot body or the Hazmat Suit guy....

That's what I was thinking. Was Kaplan's post a red herring meant to throw us off the trail?

IIRC they said Hazmat Suit was morphed into one of the existing characters (I can't remember if it was Junkrat, Ana, or Mei).

Ana


I'm still hoping they make a fire based defense hero similar to Scorch in Titanfall

Wonder how many DLC characters they will do for this game. Three so far.

Assuming they don't make Overwatch 2 until next gen, maybe we will get like 3 more characters before they stop and focus on just more unlovable loot?

Have they ever described their vision?

After the negative reaction from them dropping Genji, D.va, and Mei at the same time during the beta, they said they weren't going to release multiple characters at once.

It would be amazing if they went back on this. I thought those three getting dropped at the same time was awesome.

I don't think Ana was a bait and switch, people just kept assuming that a hint for Ana was connected to Sombra.

I just don't see an OW 2 happening. Blizzard is all in on the games as service model now, that was obvious from the lack of Diablo 4 being announced and just adding a new class to D3 instead.


Jeff did say they'd 'leave the door open' about retiring heroes which could happen if they get too many. Maybe retired the heroes that don't fit in the game COUGH WIDOWMAKER

It's a Blizzard game so it will get updates for years and years if past games are to go by.
