Some soundbites data miners previously pulled Overwatch‘s files could hint at new locations coming to the Blizzard shooter.

The community first uncovered the audio files in question last July, accompanied by rampant speculation that the sounds teased a variety of future content for the game. Since the the files initially surfaced, much of the content referenced within has since gone live—Sombra and Eichenwalde, being two notable examples—but some of the audio has yet to be tied to any new content.

Reddit user OverwatchSarah recently brought these leftover files back to the community’s attention, hypothesizing that the sounds could be linked to the upcoming DLC maps developer Blizzard has been teasing. The first audio collection that OverwatchSarah links in her post seems to be themed around an underwater setting, with a bunch of wavering and reverberating ambiance. The second collection could be associated with outer space based on its futuristic bent—possibly hinting at a moon map, as suggested by a specific Winston dialogue clip. Other sounds included in the post could be potential monsters that are lurking in the depths of the sea or in the void of space, as well as a collection of miscellaneous sound bites that cover a range of mysterious themes.

A recent post to the Overwatch forums by game director Jeff Kaplan revealed that the developer has a total a six maps in development at the moment. Three of these maps are considered standard maps—meant for Quick and Competitive Play—and are expected to launch in 2017, so it seems possible that two of these three maps could support these two potential settings.

In other Overwatch news, the hero shooter recently surpassed 30 million players, so these new maps will soon be fully stocked.

Overwatch sound files may reveal future maps with radically new settings

These data-mined audio files may not be new, but they could still hint at future content for Overwatch.
