Overwatch Teaser Suggests Torbjorn’s Daughter As The Next Hero
Earlier in the week, it was revealed that Overwatch Chief Engineer Torbjorn Lindholm was saved by Lieutenant Reinhardt Wilhelm after sustaining serious injuries. Many assumed this was a hint at the possibility of a 27th hero in the works. Now we think we might have nailed down who the next character will be!
A second Overwatch Teaser has been released in the form of a letter written by Torbjorn to his wife detailing the events after Operation White Dome. In jest, Torbjorn suggested that Reinhardt might name the daughter his wife is currently pregnant with and the Lieutenant took it seriously. Below are the details of the letter:
My dear Ingrid,
I know that by now you have gotten news of my injuries in our latest mission. While the descriptions may sound terrible, the doctors are quite sure I’ll make a full recovery. Even Angela came to visit me! On the matter of my arm, I promise to make it my first priority to construct a suitable prosthesis that will make everyone forget that it was ever gone. If only Angela’s dreams of tissue regeneration were a reality! I told her she should be working harder!
They tell me that you have not yet gone into labor, so I am holding out hope that I will be able to be by your side back home in Gothenburg when the time comes. Just wait a little longer for me!
You may have heard that Reinhardt is responsible for saving my life. I’ve heard the story at least four different times myself, already, each time more unbelievable than the last. Exaggerations, as you know how he can be. All the same, they’ve decided to award him a commendation for “conspicuous bravery.” Could two words better describe the big oaf?
He has been bothering me insufferably at my bedside. Half in jest, I suggested that if it would shut him up, I would allow him to name our daughter, as he has been badgering me about it these past months. He, of course, took me at my word. Truth be told, I had been considering making him her godfather, and I hope you’ll forgive me for making this decision without your consultation. We can only hope she doesn’t take after him too much.
I told him that you would have to agree to any name he chose, so let’s hope it’s a good one (though I fear that may be beyond his abilities, given some of the ridiculous names he gives the characters in his “true stories”). I’m getting sick of this hospital, so I am hoping to return soon.
This said daughter from the Overwatch teaser points to Brigitte Lindholm, revealed in the Honor and Glory short shown at BlizzCon last year. Given that Blizzard often reveals characters in advance (Moira in the Doomfist Comic for instance) with interwoven teasers such as this, it is very likely that Brigitte is the next Overwatch hero. Unfortunately, details are slim for now, but the news taken from this Overwatch teaser is certainly exciting!
Is the news that Brigitte Lindholm may be coming to Overwatch exciting to you or do you wish for someone else? Join in on the conversation in the comment section below! Don’t forget to follow DFTG on Twitter for live gaming and entertainment news 24/7!
