Hero 32 in Overwatch is one that fans have awaited for now almost seven months. But, closing out this month, there is a small glimmer of hope that fans will get more answers on Overwatch’s next hero.
An image that was recently posted to a popular Overwatch subreddit by user u/andygmb pointed out that, in both of the last two years, Overwatch has announced a new hero at the end of February. With leaks seemingly confirmed a new Mardi Gras event at the end of the month, it would make sense that a new hero is released alongside it.

The only potential hiccup in this idea is the general idea that the Overwatch developer team has seemingly changed a great deal about how and when they release new content. From patches coming more frequently to changes in competitive seasons, there’s a lot of shift happening in the game right now that may give reason to put the hope of a new hero on pause, for now.
