We’ve known Blizzard would be adding a new hero in Overwatch for some time now, which may turn out to be a support sniper named Sombra. Today, we’re learning Blizzard will be unveiling whoever this new hero is later this month.
The reveal will take place on July 21 during San Diego Comic-Con during a panel titled, “Behind the Scenes of Overwatch’s Newest Hero.” The panel will have several Blizzard employees in attendance, like James Waugh (director of story & creative development), Michael Chu (Overwatch’s senior designer), and Arnold Tsang (Overwatch’s assistant art director) to offer a look into the creative process of developing the art, design, and story of Overwatch’s latest hero.
Considering all of the hints Blizzard has given regarding this new character, we can’t help but think we’ll be properly introduced to Sombra later this month. We’d bet Torbjorn’s turret on it.
