Ever since the release of Overwatch there has been no shortage of easter eggs in the game. While some players only play the game to dominate other players with their skills, there are some who take a break from all the action in Overwatch just to notice all the easter eggs and other details Blizzard has hidden in the map. Now a new rumor is circulating the internet suggesting that new Overwatch heroes namely Sombra and Doomfist are soon joining ranks with the existing Overwatch heroes.

The report comes from 2p.com, and to support rumor about these new Overwatch heroes they have also presented some evidence for it. First up is Sombra who appears in Soldier 76’s files, and might possibly be a rival to Agent 76.

As for the Doomfists, according the Overwatch’s lore Doomfist is the name given to those who wear the gauntlet. The first Doomfist was defeated by Winston, who after defeating him took the gauntlet and put it on display in the museum.

If you remember the first cinematic, Widowmaker and Reaper sneaked into the museum and they wanted to steal the gauntlet.

There is another reference to Doomfists, in Numbani map a poster shoes all the Doomfists who ever wore the gauntlet, and also gives a hint that there might be a successor who will wear the gauntlet.

However, the developer clarified that these new features and improvements are not to be expected to be released any time soon, as these features are from from finished and will take time before going live.
