Whether you are busy dipping into Overwatch porn, cooking up tactics from our guides, or buying $30 aimbots off Chinese darknet sites, you will all be interested in any new Overwatch character that comes your way. On that front, a name Liao has popped up recently.

Nobody really knew him before this, none that we know of at least, and suddenly Blizzard Entertainment advertently or inadvertently let it slip that he is one of the six founders of Overwatch!

One of the six founders and we don’t even know what he looks like, let alone knowing his skillsets and powers! How can that be? And even if it had been so, why mention him now, and that too scantily at the end of a regular blog post?

Well because it is a tease for a new Overwatch character of course!

While talking about Overwatch being back as uncertainty and hope lingers after the UN has confirmed vigilante activity, the developers touched up on some history and said this:

No country was succeeding in securing its own territory. But some soldiers and strategists showed remarkable ingenuity in acclimating to this new brand of warfare. The United Nations covertly brought a few of these unique minds together to form a small, nimble team, aimed at striking significant blows against omnic strongholds. Their names—Morrison, Reyes, Amari, Liao, Wilhelm, and Lindholm—have since become legendary. The world would come to know them as the founders of Overwatch.

We only know five of them, which suggests that in one of the upcoming updates on the content side, Blizzard Entertainment will probably talk about this Liao.

We have all sorts of theories about his would-be powers, do tell us your too!
