Crashlogs in the Overwatch’s PTR reference the new hero. Is Doomfist coming this summer?


It feels like we’ve been waiting an eternity for Doomfist to make his Overwatch debut. In reality, it hasn’t been that long, but players have been eagerly awaiting his addition to the roster.

Well it looks like we may not be waiting much longer.

The crashlog for the Public Test Region for the upcoming patch mentions Summer Games and *gasp* Doomfist.

Spotted on Reddit and the Overwatch forum, the references on the log have apparently been removed, but you can check out a screenshot here.

Overwatch’s 2016 Summer Games kicked off on August 2 so it’s likely we’ll see a similar event this year.

As for Doomfist, perhaps we’ll be seeing him within a year of his first teasers.
