In the video above, Arekkz goes over the various Doomfist hints found by players on the PTR, the main reference being a new model of the Numbani Payload depicted by a wire mech file. Here, the glass on the payload containing Doomfist’s gauntlet is broken, as we previously reported.
Along with the file, the menu music in the PTR has also been changed to Doomfist’s theme, which was first heard in the original Overwatch cinematic, and the Hero Gallery UI has changed slightly as if to make space for another Hero card.
So, do all signs point to Doomfist coming to the game, or a Doomfist event of sorts? If an event, maybe the goal is to find out who stole the gauntlet. Or he’s indeed the next hero. We can only speculate at this point.
The Year of the Rooster event ends next week, so it’s unlikely new content will be added so soon. But, as Arekkz notes, with PAX East coming up in March, it’s possible we will hear more then or at least get a cinematic. Maybe. You know how things work with Blizzard.
Anyway, give the video a watch.
