Blizzard Entertainment’s Overwatch will be receiving Role Queue as a new feature soon, allowing players to matchmake according to their preferred role. However, that’s not all the development team has coming. Though director Jeff Kaplan promised that hero 31 would be coming “later”, teasers have already begun popping up.

The first sees a rather innocuous Developer Update with Jeff Kaplan that devolves into a singularity, followed by several on-screen equations. Some Twitter users noted that the numbers represented Kepler’s Third Law which focuses on escape velocity. A subsequent tweet had a song playing in the background – which seems to be Erik Satie’s Gnossienne No.1 – as an individual can be seen with the Sigma symbol on his jacket.

This lends further credence to the next hero possibly being Sigma. Fans are already speculating that his ability could focus on slowing down time using music, much like Lucio had in the game’s alpha. We’ll have to wait for more information, but in the meantime, who knows what other crazy teasers could emerge?
