Several established heroes also seem to have new looks in the sequel.
Leaks have been emerging left and right for Blizzard Entertainment’s Overwatch 2 over the past few days. A report on ESPN, based on a training document, stated that the game would have four player co-op PvE missions, a new PvP mode and a new hero. New art for the game has apparently leaked via the Blizzard Gear Shop, which Wowhead on Twitter discovered.
Though it features familiar heroes like Genji, Tracer and Mei, they each have slightly different looks/outfits. There’s also the fact that Echo, last seen in the animated short “Reunion”, is to the left. Echo was already confirmed to be one of the upcoming new heroes though Blizzard never said when she would arrive.
There’s been no official confirmation from Blizzard on any of the leaks, especially considering the first rumors of Overwatch 2 started in June 2019. For now, all roads to BlizzCon 2019 and we’re seemingly on track for a reveal during the Opening Ceremony on November 1st. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
