After a long and protracted ARG, the wait is finally over for Overwatch fans. Blizzcon is just around the corner, and with it the (probable) reveal of new hero, Sombra. And just ahead of the annual convention, the first official art has been found.
The full picture, which was allowed to go public on Blizzard's servers and then posted to the Overwatch subreddit, is signed by a senior illustrator, concept artist and character designer at Blizzard, John Polidora.
The original link was taken down, but another version with a slightly different URL was uploaded to Blizzard's merchandise store. You can see that in full below:
Given that the image is still live on Blizzard's own site, it's tempting to see this as a deliberate leak of sorts. But for a fan base that have been teased relentlessly for months about Sombra's existence, it's nice to see some light at the end of the tunnel. Especially when it involves seemingly standing on top of a lot of robots. (Or a robot hand.)
Around four days. That's how long we have until Blizzcon begins. Reckon that's enough time to knock a quick Sombra cosplay together?
