Well they used a piece of comic artwork as their icon, so that's possibly a strong hint.

4chan leaks only happen when the leaker honestly believes that its pretty shitty. Im glad that he did it.

Oh, I thought it was a really well done piece of fan art.

Edit:
Yeah, it was done by Nesskain who did Pharah and Reinhardt's comics and has continued making Overwatch fan art. Maybe it is a hint.

It feels like more coincidence than anything else. Though if Blizzard used an artist for Mei's comic that they'd used for previous comics, it wouldn't be unexpected.

What's interesting is that aside from the confirmation that 25 is probably Doomfist, this leaker doesn't have anything else from the future to reveal. He leaked the Year of the Rooster, which no one saw coming, and the existence of Hero 24's qualities as a tank alternative to Reinhardt. But he hasn't leaked anything since then, which either means he got liquidated or lost access to the information.

Ever wonder why we don't have constant updates on what heroes are coming up next in Heroes of the Storm? Some fool leaked the list and order of in-dev heroes, and Team 1 consequently sealed off the information to prevent that kind of leak from happening again. It wouldn't surprise me if something similar happened on Team 4.

From personal experience I can tell you the members of Team 1 aren't that tight lipped about who's in the game. I was literally talking to a guy who started mentioning characters that weren't in the game without realizing they weren't publicly available or announced.

I can believe that, but that doesn't seem to translate to folks getting that information and turning it into leaks about upcoming toons in Heroes.

Some HotS dev once liked my Azshara drawing on Insta. I took it as confirmation that she will eventually come between 2018-21

Well. I guess we can't have any of the good guys disliking each other. But still, was that the best they could come up with?

This is completely different from his view before that Omnics were just automatons pretending at being alive.

If this was all it took for him to get over his Omnic-hatred then the city's full of non-violent omnics should've done it ages ago.

Only Widowmaker and Reaper are allowed to be bad and they have to be really bad. They are even dressed for the part.

Kek.

I'm so glad I'm only interested in Overwatch for it's gameplay, because Lore/Setting wise? It's trash, beyond trash. It's probably the worst thing Blizzard have ever put out - just let that sink in.

Yea that was not good at all. They could have worked it out better if it was much longer but oh well.

I don't find Overwatch's lore or setting particularly interesting, but neither do I consider it bad. It's just there, and fairly easy to ignore.

Blizzard did say that a lot of the inspiration came from superhero comics, which I don't usually like all that much, so that might explain my indifference. I don't really any dire problems that haven't already been seen in a lot of other Blizzard games.
