OW2 Hero Reveal

During the Overwatch League Grand Finals at 4:00 p.m. Pacific Time, Blizzard will showcase "an early look" at Overwatch 2's next hero. Viewers can tune in to the official Overwatch League YouTube channel and catch a glimpse later.

Details are practically nonexistent on who the next Overwatch 2 hero might be but, hopefully, they add new energy to the game after the release of Sojourn, Junker Queen, and Kiriko.

While we don't know what type of hero is coming, Blizzard posted they will add new characters every other season after Seasons 1 and 2. With this in mind, players will know beforehand when characters will drop. Also, judging from the timing of the new hero reveal, we will likely see this character in-game for Season 2's launch on December 6.

Before then, players will see hero nerfs and Mei's Ice Wall ability getting a tune-up before making her accessible again to the public on November 15.

Note: Activision Blizzard is still under investigation by the state of California for serious harassment charges. CEO Bobby Kotick is alleged to have known about such actions within his company – and performed some himself – and shielded the perpetrators from consequences.
