New Overwatch Character Reveal in Upcoming Animated Short?

Ever since Overwatch beta ended, fans have been restless for the release of the game. Now a new rumor has emerged that suggests that the new Overwatch character  named Sombra will be revealed in the next animated short for the game.

The clue comes from a French cinema chain, which will be screening the upcoming animated shorts for Overwatch on May 23. The cinema chain included a reference to the discovery of new hero, the cinema chain since has claimed that it was a typo.

NeoGaf user Nirolak has put together interesting pointers towards an new Overwatch character called Sombra, which could be the new hero which may be revealed in the upcoming animated shorts.

To support his theory he presented the clues, the first clue is the launch character Reaper’s audio files, hat include a line saying “Where’s Sombra when you need her”. The second clue he presented was a dossier with the name Sombra on it that appears in game’s Dorado level.

Blizzard is organizing an event for Overwatch at Cinemark theaters in US on Sunday May 22, and during this event a collection of cinematics, hero trailers and animated shorts will be screened.

These Overwatch animated shorts  include two new episodes featuring Shimada Brothers, Hanzo and Genji, and the masked vigilante Soldier 76. Hopefully this new Overwatch character will be revealed in these new animated shorts.
