Overwatch 2’s Colosseo card could hint at the game’s next hero

As Overwatch 2’s alpha gameplay begins to surface, fans of the franchise have noticed that one of the newest maps, Colosseo, could hint at the game’s next hero – Zephyrus.

Be it the Junker Queen with posters all over Junkertown, or the general nods of different heroes on different maps, Overwatch isn’t a game that’s shy about referencing future heroes.

The same goes for its sequel, Overwatch 2, as it not only brings loads of new content like Sojourn and a bunch of hero overhauls, but also introduces four new maps.

It’s on one of these new maps, Colosseo, that fans of the game have started noticing hints of the game’s possible next hero.

Discovered by Master Ian Gamerone of Overwatch 2’s newest maps, Colosseo, contains various hints and references to the next possible hero, Zephyrus.

First, prior to the game’s alpha, players were able to see a poster that featured two gladiators who appeared to be controlled by human pilots engaged in combat. One gladiator was named Zephyrus and the other Maximus.

But now that more access has been granted to the game, gamers, namely Master Ian Gamer, noticed a screen in a bar within the map that gives more information about the dedicated gladiators. Thanks to the screen, more information about Zephyrus’ character design can be extracted.

The screen shows more details about Zephyrus.

Indicated by a small Italian flag next to his name, Zephyrus appears to be of Italian origin, or at least to represent the country of Italy in battle. He also has a pair of wings protruding from his back that are eerily similar to Mercy’s, possibly indicating some form of flight. He also appears to wield two thin swords as weapons, which would be a first for the franchise.

Aside from what has been seen, not much information is currently available on the Gladiator. One thing is for sure though, Zephyrus would not only be a new take on heroes in Overwatch, but a welcome one as well.

However, due to the release of Sojourn with Overwatch 2, the chances of a possible new hero can be quite slim. Only time will tell if Blizzard will pull through with Zephyrus in the future.
