Overwatch’s New Hero is “Very Far Along” & Another is in Prototype Stage

Occasionally the game director of Overwatch, Jeff Kaplan, releases video updates where he details coming changes and information to Blizzard’s massive hit. This time he touched upon a few, minor character buffs and nerfs, new maps, and new heroes. The first of which is “very far along” and hinted at coming out before the end of the year. This hero is currently¬†being playtested to much satisfaction within the Overwatch offices. The second, and last, hero he talked about is still in prototype stage. As such don’t expect to hear anything about it until next year. No clues or hints were given as to the powers or looks of the two heroes.

You can check out the video for yourself below. Once you push play it should start right when Mr. Kaplan talks about the new additions. Anyone else excited for another character in Overwatch?¬†Do you think it’s the much talked about Sombra? Let us know!
