More Overwatch characters likely to appear in Heroes of the Storm

Tracer's debut was a hit, so expect more crossovers to the Nexus. 


Heroes of the Storm is all about bringing Blizzard's best characters into one arena. So before Overwatch launch in May, Tracer made her debut in the game. She was a resounding success, mostly becuase she was a bit overpowered and had to be nerfed a bit, and Blizzard took notice. Could more Overwatch characters be coming?

"I'd say the reaction to Tracer has been overwhelmingly positive," Lead Designer Kent-Erik Hagman told Destructoid. "She has such a fun, almost militantly positive personality that brings a unique voice to the Nexus. Having seen how our players reacted to her, you can definitely say that we're looking at adding even more Heroes from Overwatch There are so many awesome characters that we think would make great, unique additions to Heroes of the Storm."

That said, who do you think would be the best character to hit the Nexus next?

      Could more show up? Oh, w/o question. That's the new baseline moving forward.

      The bigger question is, when will we see a hero from Legion show up.

        Gul'dan was released a couple weeks ago. He's an old Warcraft name, but it would be hard to say his introduction into HotS wasn't somewhat motivated by the movie and Legion.

      They pretty much have to, now that Tracer is in it. She's one of the very few non game-related characters as it pertains to "win 2 games with X Game hero). Would be weird to have an Overwatch quest wth one hero.

      I really, really want to see Reinhardt and McCree in HotS. Lucia could work very well also.

        I think mercy and reaper could work well. None of the snipers still necessary, and I wouldn't care for roadhog. Don't feel like pharrah would be great either. Bastion could be cool.
