A new leak purportedly showing an image of the Overwatch 2 beta and a hero select screen for the sequel with some of the new heroes being included is causing a lot of debate among players.
Overwatch 2 has been in development for what seems like forever, but some of the new leaks could be a breath of fresh air for players and fans if they prove to be legit.
These latest supposed leaks show a screen prompting players to download the beta and a hero select screen – each showing a brand new number of heroes.

The first image shows the Overwatch home screen, with a banner announcing the open beta of Overwatch 2 has arrived. Along with a button to download the beta, there’s also a list of three new heroes that are said to be available in there: Queen Junker and Mauga both have been confirmed as the upcoming hero and another lesser known blonde character.
She seems like Brit, a hero who was brought on to the field for Prometheus, which was the name of the game before it was Overwatch. She, according to alleged leaks in the comments, acts like a D.Va pilot with a drone that can heal, clean, and amplify damage.
Next, the Reddit post showing the hero select screen, with four new heroes, is from a separate leak from the first Overwatch 2 beta image. Magua and ‘The Queen’ are both here, along with Sojourn, who we know is already in Overwatch 2.
The new hero in this image though is called ‘Yokai’ – who resembles the original Sombra repeat – and no sign of Brit is seen. There have been several possible references to a fox spirit hero in Overwatch already, especially on the Kanezaka Deathmatch map.
However, having a discrepancy between the two images can mean that one must be wrong or just a fake. Either way, unless Blizzard addresses these leaks, which are unlikely, we won’t know for sure.
However, it’s important to keep in mind that these are unofficial leaks and treat them like salt in the water. With total radio silence on Overwatch 2 from Blizzard, all we know is that both can be made up completely.
This is the second leak in as many days, but each time it’s a bit different. The previous leak from Feb 11 announced that Overwatch 2 beta will start at the end of Februaryand then the next day these show up.
Legitimate or not, these leaks show that Overwatch fans are hungry for new content. If there’s even a shred of truth to this, early access to Overwatch 2 may indeed be arriving at some point soon, which would certainly be good news for the community, regardless of us. Which new hero will get.
