Maybe Overwatch’s Next Hero Isn’t Doomfist

There has been a lot of talk over the last few months about the upcoming 24th playable character for Blizzard’s hit video game Overwatch. The assumption has been that the character would be the much anticipated Doomfist, a character that has been teased since the very first cartoon debuted at Blizzcon in 2014. The cartoon showed Widowmaker and Reaper trying to steal Doomfist’s glove while Tracer and Winston try to stop them. In the game, protecting or steal Doomfist’s glove is one of the games.

But what if the new character isn’t Doomfist?

On the Overwatch forums, game director Jeff Kaplan told fans: “24 is not who you think it is.”

Is Kaplan playing with fans of the game? Or is the 24th hero added going to be someone other than Doomfist? And who might it be?

One possible option, according to IGN, is Greek. A month ago actor Alex Malaos updated his CV to say that he was working on character named Greek for a video game. He has since removed the listing and has denied that he is playing new Greek hero.
