Blizzard Teases Doomfist as Next Playable Overwatch Character

Blizzard Teases Doomfist as Next Playable Overwatch Character

"Heroes" in Overwatch are the characters that players control in the game's signature class based, multiplayer battles.

A few recent happenings point toward the possible release of Doomfist as a playable hero in Overwatch soon: Doomfist's gauntlet was stolen from the map Numbani in February, and Blizzard named the current public test region "Summer Games/Doomfist", suggesting Doomfist would be coming to the game in August.

The report narrated that an unidentified aircraft approached the facility and passed through its defense systems without incident, most probably because the prison's technology was hacked by Sombra. Video surveillance from within the compound revealed a black shadowy figure emerging from the craft and descending upon the prison grounds. The assailant overcame the Helix security guards, leaving over dozen deceased.

The Overwatch blog has a new "report", a fictionalized news item, that once again raises the specter of Doomfist.

Doomfist is not simply a name but a title, given to the wielder of the powerful Doomfist gauntlet.

The "Overwatch" hype is now in full swing following a recent post by #Blizzard hyping up what seems to be the next hero in the game.

Blizzard has updated the official Overwatch website with new story details alluding to Doomfist, a character fans have been wanting for some time now. Ogundimu is believed to be aligned with the villains of Overwatch, but could also take on traits of an anti-hero.

Today there was a post on announcing the involvement of Talon in the latest attack on Helix city.

Here's hoping this isn't another teaser setting up a new hero who isn't Doomfist.

Last year, Brooklyn Nine-Nine actor Terry Crews said he'd love to voice Doomfist. So when, exactly will we be getting to go hands on with Doomfist? This could lead to other potential characters somewhere down the line.

Ogundimu was said to have reclaimed the Doomfist gauntlet, which was the payload that needed to be escorted in the Numbani map, and then destroyed the robots in the Numbani Airport. What abilities do you think he'd have?
