Did you miss news about Overwatch ? Well cheer up love, the cavalry’s here with some interesting news.
Today the different Overwatch accounts published on Twitter some wanted posters. As you might already think they could be related to future playable characters. Of course they are not as charismatic as Tracer or Lúcio, but they do have some nice psychopath heads.
From a personal point of view, I do believe that the character wearing a gas mask is already present in one of the official Overwatch artwork, as Lúcio was already present in the trailer.
