A post on the Overwatch website mentions the Horizon Lunar Colony. The fictional company Lucheng Interstellar said in a fake press conference that they discovered the colony's databases and monitoring systems are still operational, potentially referencing a new map.

"While no direct communication has been established with the facility, the company has successfully retrieved interpersonnel logs sent days and moments before the base lost contact with earth," reads a line from the post.

A number of transmissions have also been shared, which may contain more clues. Based on the transmissions, it looks like this teaser could be for a new gorilla hero after Winston, possibly named Hammond.

This teaser came out of nowhere today, a holiday in the United States and the United Kingdom. It comes during Overwatch's Anniversary event and right before the start of Competitive Season 5.
