When it comes to the release of new heroes in Blizzard’s Overwatch, they’re usually leaked early and everyone already knows who it’s going to be prior to the official announcement. However, there have been some hints in the game that have lead people to believe that the next hero will be someone in particular, though the game’s director has come out to make people reconsider.
Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan recently posted on the game’s forum regarding the next hero in the game, which many assumed would be Doomfist. Kaplan responded by saying “24 is not who you think it is,” presumably meaning that Doomfist will not be the next hero. Of course, this doesn’t rule out the character ever coming to the game, but it looks like there is a currently-unknown character that has the priority at the moment.
Season 3 of Overwatch’s Competitive Play is just about to come to an end, with the season’s official ending being tomorrow at 4 PM PT. The developer said that “If you completed your placement matches during Season 3, you will eligible to receive a special spray and player icon. These will be unlocked automatically when you log into your account the first time after the season ends. If at any point during the season you managed to break into the Top 500 players on your platform (and in your region), you’ll receive an extra player icon and animated spray on top of the other seasonal rewards.”
