Blizzard seems to be teasing a new Overwatch character


I hope it’s Hammond

[Update: Blizzard has posted another teaser clip and I don’t know what to expect anymore.]

Rolling through.

Leave it to Blizzard to rile up Overwatch fans with a simple video clip of a wall.

We’ve long heard murmurs about Hammond, a test subject from Horizon Lunar Colony similar to everyone’s favorite bespectacled gorilla Winston. With the new Lunar Colony map redesign and today’s teaser, Blizzard could very well be setting him up as a soon-to-be-playable character.

Calm before the storm.

Then again, it could be a ruse. Maybe it’s time for the Queen of Junkertown to make her grand entrance. I’ll leave it to eagle-eyed theorycrafters to suss out all the clues, but I’m pulling for the space monkey.
