Overwatch Could Get a New Hero Soon
Highlights
  • Emre Sarioglu could be the next Overwatch hero
  • The name was discovered in Operation White Dome
  • It's a piece of Overwatch lore teased by Blizzard

Blizzard may be prepping Overwatch for a new hero. The popular multiplayer shooter is currently in the middle of its Lunar New Year Event, the Year of the Dog. And with the Overwatch Anniversary Event next, the official Overwatch Twitter account let slip information on the proceedings of Operation White Dome — a piece of the game’s lore.

In it the tweet mentions Ana Amari, Reinhardt, and Torbjorn — three characters that are already in game. An unfamiliar name is "Private First Class Emre Sarioglu”, which could point to a new Overwatch character. The entry for Operation White Dome talks of the squad deployed to deal with a remaining pocket of omnic [the game’s robot faction] resistance."

Overwatch launched in 2016 with 21 characters and is now a legitimate e-sport with the advent of the Overwatch League. Since its release we’ve seen five new ones with the latest being Moira. If Blizzard is teasing what we think it is, we could see the 27th hero being added soon enough.

In our Overwatch review, we noted that there’s a great balance between depth and accessibility as well as the right amount of reliance on skill, and moments of magic that make Overwatch well worth playing. Valve might not ever make another Team Fortress game what with finding solace in hats and Steam, but Overwatch carries on the mantle of being an entertaining team-based shooter that anyone can play. More so with Blizzard's penchant for supporting games for longer than usual periods of time, make it one you should definitely check out.
