Is Blizzard teasing the next Overwatch hero?

It's beginning to look a lot like Blizzard is gearing up to reveal another new hero, number 28, to popular online shooter Overwatch, if a series of tweets on the game's official Twitter account are anything to go by.

The first teaser came on Friday, and didn't show much except a wall of posters. Fans of the game speculate that the anti-robot sentiment means that the location is likely the game's depiction of London. Today's tease however show a little bit more, with a ball rolling through shot.

Fans on the game's reddit and social media are speculating that the ball is an escape pod that belongs to Hammond, also known as Specimen 8, one of the monkeys that were test subjects in the game's Horizon Lunar Colony. As of patch 1.25 a new room has been added to that map beside existing hero Winston's room.

Undoubtedly we'll become more informed as Blizzard reveal more in the coming days. Overwatch is out now on Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4.
