What is the Release Date for the New Junker Queen Animated Short?

Fans of Overwatch love the cinematics just as much as they love to play the game. Blizzard has found a way to build the universe of Overwatch through the use of these shorts. Each one is centered around one or two characters in hopes to flesh out the story and background of the characters outside of the game. During the Summer Games Fest last week, it was revealed last week that Overwatch 2 finally has a release date.

But that wasn’t the true exciting part. Fans couldn’t believe it as another new hero was announced for Overwatch 2. Junker Queen will make her debut on October 4 with the release of Overwatch 2. Better yet, with the new character is a new cinematic that will air before the Overwatch League matches on June 16.

In the release clip during Summer Games Fest, viewers got a quick peek at the upcoming cinematic. Titled “The Wastelander”, this new animated short is focused on Junker Queen. Audiences saw Junker Queen take some steps into the arena, where she was met by the applause of fans and the threats of three other competitors. It was a short glimpse into the world of Junker Queen, but it was just enough to get fans excited for the full story.

Even before the upcoming animated short, players already know a little but about this newest character. Junker Queen is the first new tank in Overwatch 2. She is also the voice that berates Junkrat and Roadhog on Junker Town as they capture the first point. Fans will surely learn more about the relationship between the three when the new short is released June 16.
