Blizzard Once Again Teases Doomfist as the Next Potential Overwatch Hero

Doomfist is finally coming to Overwatch

Though we've all known about the idea of Doomfist for quite some time, these first announcements are more similar to the unveiling of Orisa than of Sombra.

Unlike many shooters, whose multiplayer avatars are soldiers without identity, Overwatch's heroes have backstories, personalities, and dialogue.

Blizzard are once again teasing the arrival of Doomfist, Overwatch's rumoured next playable hero, via an in-universe blog post this week. With a blog post updating the already deep lore to the game, fans might be getting what they want. It continues to say "Video surveillance from within the compound revealed a black shadowy figure emerging from the craft and descending upon the prison grounds". The incident, which was previously theorized to be done by Doomfist, was confirmed through the news report. In an Overwatch blog update created to appear as "Times of Numbani" news article, it was confirmed that Doomfist had escaped from the Helix Security International's maximum security installation. After some data mining, there was the note of Doomfist's name in the recent update, and could possibly be released during the Summer Games Patch with the return of Lucioball.

Actor Terry Crews, a self-professed fan of Overwatch and other Blizzard games, has frequently been linked to Doomfist and has lobbied Blizzard to allow him to voice the character.

The assault was led by Reaper who killed dozens of Helix security officers that were defending the inmates. Now Blizzard has started teasing Doomfist for real.

The previous in-game tie in with Doomfist was the destruction inside Numbani Airport, where players could see the OR15 defense robots completely destroyed.

That's either the cruelest joke Blizzard can play on Overwatch players or final confirmation that Doomfist is coming. You probably noticed that the Doomfist is no longer on the Numbani payload.

Doomfist was originally mentioned in Overwatch's animated trailer which showed Winston and Tracer fighting against Reaper and Widowmaker as they attempt to steal Doomfist's gauntlet from a museum.
