Overwatch teaser for the new hero, possibly even Hammond

Quite a lot of time has passed since Brigitte first appeared in Overwatch, so it shouldn't come as much of a surprise to hear that Blizzard has now begun teasing the next hero. What might come as a bit of a surprise is that unlike the previous few teasers, Blizzard has opted to give us very little new information this time around.

If you're wondering just how little we're talking about, let's just say that they've quite literally posted a six-second-long video of a wall in Rialto! The one interesting aspect of this teaser is that the wall now features a couple of new images, most notably a small, swinging monkey. Before I say anything else, you should probably go and check out the video over at the Overwatch Twitter.

While I'm sure everyone's first instinct is to say this is a teaser for Hammond, a small monkey that possibly organized the downfall of the Horizon Lunar Colony, chances are high that this new hero is going to be anyone but Hammond. The reason I say this is because Blizzard has teased the 'wrong' hero almost every single time, with the actual teaser being a small and seemingly inconspicuous detail.

If you're wondering what that detail might be, I'm afraid you'll have to wait until more information comes in because right now everything is just pure speculation. I've seen people argue the next hero could be everything from the Junkertown Queen to the some of the Talon Omnics, so I wouldn't put too much stake into rumors just yet.

Once more details come to light, most likely alongside the next teaser, I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, you should probably go and check out the Symmetra rework on the PTR as it's bound to arrive to the live servers in the near future.
