Looks Like Doomfist Is Finally Coming to Overwatch


It sounds like Doomfist may be making his debut in Overwatch at last. A brand new teaser post has gone up on the official Overwatch website, and we're seeing a pattern very similar to what we saw right before Orisa was revealed. In fact, the latest post deals with the destructive events that took place in Numbani right before we caught our first glimpse of Orisa. At the time, we thought a Doomfist reveal was imminent. Today, our hopes have been renewed. The very first paragraph tells us almost everything we need to hear:

"Three months after initial reports of an incident at Helix Security International's classified maximum security installation, a more complete picture of what happened has emerged. Information and details of what happened were scarce as has been any news from the installation, said to be a prison for the world's most dangerous threats. However, after recent events in Numbani, it can now be confirmed that what occurred was an attack by the Talon organization with the express purpose of freeing one man: Akande Ogundimu, better known as Doomfist."

So Talon made it past Helix security and overtook a maximum security prison in order to free Doomfist. Does this mean that Doomfist is a Talon agent, or will he be more of an independent rogue like Sombra? Either way, it sounds like we'll be meeting him sooner or later. From the sound of the report it seems Ogundimu (Doomfist) escaped and found his prized weapon.

"After escaping from the facility, Helix lost track of Ogundimu until he resurfaced in Numbani, where he clashed with the newly introduced OR15 defense robots at the Adawe International Terminal, easily destroying them and reclaiming the Doomfist."


The only question we have now is whether or not Terry Crews will have the honor of voicing Doomfist. He's been stating outright that he's dying to voice a character in Overwatch, and even went so far as to record a few sample lines. We also know that Crews paid a visit to Blizzard last year, so we're wondering if we'll hear his voice in the next update. Wondering, and hoping. We'll keep you guys posted as soon as we learn more!
