With every new Overwatch hero comes a ton of hype and anticipation, with fans hungry for every sliver of information that they can get their hands on. Of course, Blizzard knows this, and is teasing hard about what’s to come.
In an interview with Freedo on YouTube, creative director Jeff Kaplan spoke about the new hero, describing it as “meta changing.”
“This hero is super solid, and after a playtest we always hear the comment ‘Yeah, that’s an Overwatch hero’ and ‘That’s gonna feel really great.’ It’s progressing really awesome … I think everyone is going to be really excited. I think it will be meta changing. I will go ahead and say that.”
Kaplan is promising some big things here, and it sounds like the hero is already well on its way to being implemented into the game’s PTR client. After some community trials and feedback, we’ll then see the new hero added to live servers.
