Blizzard surprised its fans last year when it revealed that Overwatch 2 is in the works and that the game will push the story forward. Of all of its new additions, there’s one thing that fans are most excited about.
Overwatch 2 will add a new story mode and a lot of new features. These are all welcomed changes, but what fans are most excited about are the new characters that will join the 32-man roster of the original Overwatch. One confirmed character for the sequel is Sojourn. Here are other characters that might get introduced in the sequel.
By the end of the Storm Rising event during the Archives Event, we get to see Doomfist talking to a mysterious Omnic. From the look of things, Talon has some sinister plans with this mysterious omnic. We only got to see the face of the new character, and even Blizzard is yet to reveal who this is.
It’s apparent that the Omnic will have major implications in the story moving forward. This new character will likely be added to the game shortly after it launches.
Maximillian is the Omnic clad in a suit from Talon. Aside from Doomfist, Reaper, Sombra, Widowmaker, and Moira, he’s the last of the Talon leaders that have yet to join the game. Fans have been requesting Maximillian’s addition for a long time already. He has also been rumored to be a part of the roster in Overwatch before.
Considering the support and lore behind him, we might get to see Maximillian added to Overwatch 2 as well.
The Junker Queen is already pretty prominent in the game. She can be heard over at Junker Town, and she also plays a huge role in the lore of Wrecking Ball, Roadhog, and Junkrat. As the leader of Junker Town, she is said to be out for the heads of Roadhog and Junkrat. It will be exciting to see her interact with the duo in the game.
She is one of the most requested characters in the game, but it’s most likely because fans already know what she looks and sounds like.
Overwatch 2 is going to be filled with a roster of exciting characters once again. Hopefully, Blizzard adds some of the most requested characters in the game. We’ve yet to know precisely how many new heroes Blizzard will add, but fans are hoping for a huge roster update.
