The final chapter in the Overwatch comic series, New Blood, finally brings in fan-favorite D.Va and seems to hint that members of her MEKA squad could join Overwatch 2.
The New Blood comic series was a hit with fans. The Dark Horse comics follow Cole Cassidy on his quest to recruit new members for Overwatch to face the threat of the Null Sector and Talon.
On March 15th, the fifth and final chapter debuted and sees D.Va and the rest of the MEKA squad fight an army of omnics, but things get dramatic when the Korean hero’s boss doesn’t let them work for Overwatch.

New Overwatch 2 heroes teased
As the battle raged and MEKA troops were threatened, Cassidy, Pharah, Zarya, and Baptiste showed up to save the day.
After the dust settled, D.Va was allowed by her supervisor to work with Overwatch and go with them while the rest of the MEKA group would stay in Korea.
Before launch, however, Cassidy gave the leader some data on all the threats they’ve faced so far, suggesting this won’t be the last we’ll see them or the rest of the Korean pilots.
The four members of MEKA that could become playable heroes are Casino, King, Overlord, and D.Mon. Interestingly, the latter actually had official concept art showing what she might be like as an actual character in the game.
Unfortunately, it may be some time before more MEKA Squad members are playable in Overwatch 2, as only one new hero, Sojourn, will be available in the OW2 beta next April.
Still, the developers are teasing a lot of tanks and supports in development for future beta iterations, so there’s a chance we’ll see them in action later in 2022. We just have to see what the future brings.
