Overwatch's Next Character Teased In New Blog Post

Meet Efi Oladele, who may be related to the game's next playable character.


We know another character is on the way to Overwatch, and it apparently isn't whom we expect--likely ruling out Doomfist. Blizzard today seemingly teased the new addition to the roster with a new blog post.

Under the guise of an interview that takes place in the Overwatch world, we get to learn about 11-year-old Efi Oladele. She's a gifted young scientist who has experience with robots and artificial intelligence.

It's unclear if Efi herself could be the new character, or if she's somehow related to whomever it might be. The interview may suggest she'll use money from a grant she received to create someone or something that could be the new character.

Asked what she'll do with the money, she says, "Oh... I have an idea..." She then adds, "It's a secret for now… but my parents are taking me on a trip to celebrate! It'll be my first time flying, so I can't wait."

There's not yet a date for when the new character will arrive, but more than one is currently in development. Blizzard also has some significant changes in the works that you can try out for yourself on the public test realm right now. Meanwhile, new Funko Pop figures are on the way, as is a Nendoroid based on Tracer.
