With nary a moment to breath since the release of Overwatch‘s last new hero, game director Jeff Kaplan has teased that the game’s next fighter may have already been hinted at somewhere in Overwatch‘s lore.

In a recent interview at the Fun & Serious Game Festival in Spain, PCGamesN asked Kaplan about what we can expect from Overwatch‘s 27th hero. While no details were offered, Kaplan did reveal that fans might have already seen them, calling the character “a surprise that has perhaps been hinted at.”

The character was presumably involved in a previous Overwatch comic, in a similar manner that the game’s newest hero, Moira, showed up in the Overwatch comic for Doomfist.

“We were trying to subtly hint at her,” Kaplan recollected. “She was in the Doomfist comic, and seeing how fans had glommed onto everything back in the Sombra ARG days, they literally picked apart everything, so we thought they would pick up on that a lot more.”

While the most dedicated of the fanbase combs through previous Overwatch comics and other lore looking for who might be next, the rest of us can pass the time by enjoying the recently launched Winter Wonderland event, which introduces two seasonal Arcade modes, as well as several winter-themed Legendary skins.
