Overwatch’s Twitter account is teasing players again and the cryptic messages have players trying to connect the dots. Many are reaching the conclusion that the teases are pointing to Echo, a hero we have known about for quite a long time, but there is no way of knowing until we see a bit more.
The first tease was a document from Dr Mina Liao, with a date of March XXTH. Maybe a hint as to when the reveal is?
“After all these years, it feels good to finally get to focus on the research that I am truly passionate about. The Athena prototype has been deemed a success.”
There is also this audio message.
The Omnic vs Human story is firmly at the core of Overwatch, and Dr Liao was hoping that she could show the world that artificial life is indeed living, and that these lifeforms are not slaves or property. But then something goes wrong in the audio log. Glass breaks and something activates. Did the lifeform flee the lab?
Hopefully, we learn more soon. Until then, keep an eye out for more crumbs.
