Overwatch: here's Jeff Kaplan dodging a question about Terry Crews playing Doomfist like a pro

You're going to have to try better than this if you want Overwatch's Jeff Kaplan to spill the beans on Doomfist.

It's no secret the name Doofist has been associated with Overwatch almost since launch. His appearance was teased many times, and his gauntlet plays a big role in the game's evolving story, but we've yet to actually see him in game.

Everyone got so excited about Doomfist recently, thinking he'd be the game's next hero, and before that, fans started campaigning for actor Terry Crews to play him in the game. Crews even flew to Blizzard's HQ, though it's unclear if it was actually for the purpose of recording lines or an audition.

Things went quiet on that front for a while, until game director Jeff Kaplan was asked whether or not Crews is involved with Doomfist following last night's BAFTA awards ceremony, where Overwatch won best multiplayer game.

In the video, you can see him completely skirting around the question without offering any new details.

At this point, we have no idea if Doomfist is going to be added anytime soon, or if Crews will in fact be his voice. It sure is fun to speculate though.
