Blizzard Teases Doomfist's Overwatch Debut

Overwatch hero Doomfist teased in shock new info, could he arrive next month?

Blizzard released a faux news report on the Overwatch blog yesterday claiming that the character Reaper had sprung aka Akande Ogundimu (aka "Doomfist") from Helix Security International's classified maximum security installation within the in-game Overwatch lore. Anyone who has seen the carnage in the airport of the Numbani map can attest to the destruction he will bring to game.

During the Orisa announcement, there were several changes made to the game's lore, revealing that the Overwatch Doomfist gauntlet had been stolen.

Doomfist, the name of a long-lost Disturbed album and probably also a villain in season 57 of Power Rangers, is today's big Overwatch discussion topic. That's a good thing because though Jeff from the Overwatch team has joked about another ridiculously long ARG to announce their next hero, he knows full well that nobody wants that even a little bit. It would appear that the villainous Talon group, led by ex-Overwatch member Reaper, actually broke Ogundimu out of jail allowing him to reclaim the Doomfist.

"However, after recent events in Numbani, it can now be confirmed that what occurred was an attack by the Talon organization with the express goal of freeing one man: Akande Ogundimu, better known as Doomfist". Security initially reported that the craft had no passengers on board, based on radar scans. The aircraft was able to pass through numerous defense systems without setting off the alarm, leading some to believe that Talon had moles within the Helix organization.

This is not the first time that the name Doomfist has cropped up on Overwatch fiction. The assailant overcame the Helix security guards, leaving over dozen deceased.

In the here and now, this latest teaser suggests that Doomfist will be coming out sooner rather than later. "While no people were named, the story does say, "...sources have indicated that it is likely that there were further security breaches in addition to Ogundimu".

Using this schedule, we can, therefore, speculate on Doomfist's reveal, PTR debut, and arrival on live servers.
