Heroes from the Overwatch 2 series may appear in the future

Blizzard teases that the new heroes who might be joining Overwatch 2 soon have already been mentioned in the game's backstory.

The Overwatch 2 team revealed more details about the upcoming heroes that will be included in Blizzard's FPS, hinting that some of them may be familiar to players because they have previously appeared in the game's lore. The backstory of Overwatch 2 is full of supporting characters who help the heroes on their quest, some of whom are more significant than others in terms of influencing the past of the main Overwatch 2 protagonists.

In order to balance the game, Blizzard frequently adds new tank, support, or DPS heroes to the Overwatch 2 cast. On December 6, 2022, the tank hero Ramattra became the newest member of the Overwatch 2 cast. Overwatch 2 players are hoping that Blizzard will soon reveal a new DPS hero, as the previous two heroes to join the game, Kiriko, Sojourn, and Junker Queen, each supported the roles of support, assault, and tank characters.

In a Q&A session with Twitch streamers Christal Raine and Bro You Wack, Overwatch 2 lead hero designer Alec Dawson teased that heroes joining the playable roster in the future might be “familiar faces” already known by fans as they previously appeared in the lore of Overwatch 2 just like Junker Queen or Sojourn. He also mentioned that the Overwatch 2 development team wanted a mix of new and existing faces becoming playable heroes, so they planned to introduce new lore elements and characters in the near future.

Blizzard has been concentrating on balancing the heroes' abilities in order to create a better-optimized game for the past few months rather than adding new Overwatch 2 characters. Recently, Overwatch 2 players were asked to stop smurfing so that everyone could enjoy a better competitive experience by Scott Mercer and Morgan Maddren, who work as the meta designer and senior software engineer, respectively. Blizzard considered a number of changes to prevent players from voluntarily leaving their matches early in order to further enhance the overall Overwatch 2 gaming experience.

While waiting for new heroes to join Blizzard's FPS, Overwatch 2 players can customize their existing characters with a wide range of cosmetic elements. Overwatch 2 x One Punch Man collaboration recently released four themed legendary skins for some of the heroes to dress like the characters from the popular anime series, from One Punch Man himself to Genos, Terrible Tornado, and the Mumen Rider. This collaboration will last until April 6, with a free legendary skin available through Overwatch 2 matches and the others only available through the in-game shop.

Overwatch 2 is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
