Overwatch 2 fans think they’ve spotted a new hero in Rome map screenshots

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.

Genji, Hanzo, and Rein look great, but there could be more here than just them.

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.
