Overwatch's New Lore Update Teases Doomfist's Arrival

Overwatch's New Lore Update Teases Doomfist's Arrival

In recent months Overwatch players have spoken in hushed tones about the identity of Doomfist, believed to be the next character joining the popular arena-shooter's roster. 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. However, there are some who took a snapshot of it and took it to Twitter to herald such hint. However, it is yet to be known on what will be the true agenda of the new character. The post talks at length about the Talon Organization's attack on Helix Security International's maximum security prison in an effort to free a single prisoner, "Akande Ogundimu, better known as Doomfist". It also pointed out that it was then that Ogundimu obtained the legendary gauntlet and the moniker.

"Information and details of what happened were scarce as has been any news from the installation, said to be a prison for the world's most risky threats", the official Blizzard post reads. Given the character's famous Gauntlet, many are expecting a melee hero, but that may not be the case. Doomfist is coming to Overwatch and he'll be voiced by none other than Terry Crews. As of late, the said tweet has gained 21,000 likes and 10,000 retweets.

That's the million dollar question - but based on Blizzard's previous reveals (most notably for Orisa), we have a pretty decent idea of when Akande Ogundimu will make his debut.

The post goes on, saying Doomfist was broken out of prison by "a black shadowy figure".

"The unidentified assailant easily overcame the Helix security agents, leaving over a dozen dead".

According to the recent "Overwatch" blog update, the in-game universe has finally begun shedding some spotlight on Doomfist.

The Doomfist speculation engine in Overwatch has once again been kickstarted, this time by Blizzard themselves.

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