It’s been a few months since the newest hero, Sombra, was released and fans have been led to believe that Doomfist would be the next hero joining the current roster. But, since Jeff Kaplan’s post on the Overwatch Reddit forum confirming that “24 is not who you think it is.”, fans have been left in the dark on who the next hero will be… until now. In true Blizzard style, they have begun teasing fans with an interview with a character named ‘Efi Oladele’ – an inventor from Numbani.
In the mock interview, it states that Efi is an impressive inventor with many achievements on her resume – and she’s a pro at building robotics and artificial intelligence. She recieved a “genius grant” too, and the most impressive part? She’s accomplished this at age eleven.
While this isn’t a confirmation that Efi will be joining the line up of heroes, there are some parts of the interview that have caused us fans to speculate and wonder what Blizzard are up to.
No one knows what kind of hero she will be if she is confirmed, but many fans are thinking she may be a support hero because of her inventor status. Blizzard are one of those companies who don’t post things for the fun of it – so this interview makes things interesting! Personally, I think a support hero would be perfect for the current roster. It would be awesome if she was able to build support robots, who could heal or attack the opposing team – but although that’s just speculation – I know I’m not the only one who wishes this would happen!
What do you guys think though? You can read the full interview here too, so let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
