‘Multiple new heroes’ planned for launch
Echo isn’t the only new character arriving with Overwatch 2. During the BlizzCon reveal, we also got a glimpse of another playable hero: none other than Sojourn. She’s in! But Blizzard isn’t saying any more.
Sojourn has been on the periphery of Overwatch for ages, so it’s nice to see her step out of the lore and into the game proper. The same goes for Echo, who will soon live a full life outside of wiki pages.
Director Jeff Kaplan said the sequel will feature “multiple new heroes that will come with the game.”
