A new Overwatch character may be on the way.
A recently published in-universe blog has dropped a hint about possible new character “Liao”, who is said to be an original member of the Overwatch team.
The blog said the following:
“The United Nations covertly brought a few of these unique minds together to form a small, nimble team, aimed at striking significant blows against omnic strongholds. Their names—Morrison, Reyes, Amari, Liao, Wilhelm, and Lindholm—have since become legendary. The world would come to know them as the founders of Overwatch.”
Some believe “Liao” is the next character, while others think he’s connected to the already existing character, Mei-Ling.
Blizzard has yet to comment on the speculation.
Overwatch released on May 24th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, to positive critical reception. Check out our review of it here.
I reviewed Overwatch and while I gave it a high score, I was left a tad discouraged by the lack of depth in content beyond the mere gameplay. More characters — along with more maps, skins, and modes — will go a long way to make this game even better, and more worthy of its $60 asking point.
