Next Overwatch Hero Possibly Teased
Fans are surely excited for the new season of the Overwatch League as well as the new Paris map that just arrived in-game. However, Blizzard Entertainment is stirring the pot once again, as they seem to have teased the next hero that will be making their way to Overwatch.
Taking to Twitter, the developer shared an interesting clip that shows someone accessing a classified file of a communications record of one Captain Cuerva. Take a look for yourself below:
⚠️ Unauthorized Access Detected…
> TALON FIREWALL… Bypassed
> Accessing file… [CLASSIFIED] Communications Record of Captain Cuerva, D.

Of course, the tweet doesn’t confirm anything, but there is another piece to this puzzle. If you follow the link in the tweet, it takes you to the log that was recovered, which shows a letter from Cuerva about recovering, or eliminating, Jean-Baptiste Augustin, who many fans believe is the next hero coming to Overwatch.
The letter seems to portray Baptiste as an ex-Talon medic, which could mean that another support character is on the way. “I’ve never known a medic to be such a good shot,” Cuerva says in the letter.
Again, none of this is a guarantee that Baptiste or even Cuerva are the next Overwatch hero, but it sure does seem to be teasing something. Who knows, it could be for an upcoming event that fans will be able to enjoy. Either way, there should be plenty of good times ahead.
