After learning more information about Overwatch 2, fans think they’ve spotted signs of a brand new hero in fresh screenshots of the upcoming Rome map.
Fans have been eagerly awaiting Overwatch 2 announcements. The biggest Overwatch 2 news of 2022 so far is that the game will enter closed beta at the end of April.
Adding to this massive news, some keen-eyed fans found what could be an Easter egg for an unheralded hero in new screenshots.
New Overwatch 2 hero clue found on Rome map
Along with the closed beta announcement, Blizzard also released a bunch of new screenshots of the upcoming game, including the push map Rom.
A screenshot of Reinhardt, Genji, and Hanzo caught the attention of players because of a conspicuously placed statue in the background. If you look closely at the picture just above Rein, you can see what looks like a gladiator sculpture inside the building.
The full shot doesn’t give us many details, but thanks to fans on Reddit zooming in on the statue, we know there’s a lot more than meets the eye.
Below the statue is the name “Magnus,” which some fans believe could be a new unreleased hero coming to Overwatch 2 sometime later.
New hero or not, the statue also bears a very strong resemblance to Reinhardt, except with a sword instead of his trademark hammer.
Magnus, whether he’s an aspiring hero or just a new Reinhardt skin releasing for Overwatch 2, has definitely done one thing: finally giving Overwatch fans something to speculate about instead of wondering when the next will be update is released.
