There’s a lot of speculation right now going on for who will be the next hero in Overwatch. At first, players strongly believed it would be Doomfist, with lots of evidence pointing to that, including the Doomfist gauntlet being broken out of the containment unit it was in. Yet the team at Blizzard stated that the next hero “isn’t who we think it is”, so that in turn squashed many players’ dreams.
Many other theories have surfaced as well, based on what they’re seeing in the cities of Overwatch, with some believing that a Hercules type character was coming to the game, and with good reason. But now, another observant player may have found out who is coming, and from some very unlike sources.
Reddit User Why_Are_You_So_Angry noted that there’s a poster of a robot called Axiom overlooking the streets of Numbani. However, they revealed that this character reveals itself in two other places…in Fashion Week posters. The first image is at the top of this article, and the second is here:
While these may seem random, there’s one key fact that points to this being the next hero in the game, which is the cities under the name Aetria. The significance of this is that Fashion recently just went to New York, and Paris Fashion Week happens February 28th to March 8th. So, with that happening, and the posters being put up in Numbani, could this mean that this Axiom character is the next Overwatch hero?
If so, we could be hearing about them within the next week or so, so stay tuned.
