The upcoming map will likely take place on the same lunar base, with the Overwatch crew tasked to get control back. "The developer today posted the image below on social media with the caption, "[BREAKING UPDATE] For the first time in years, new details emerge about possible fate of Horizon Lunar Colony". (Winston was, of course, one of these test subjects.) The colony went offline when the gorillas rose in rebellion, and all contact ceased soon after.
"While no direct communication has been established with the facility, the company has successfully retrieved interpersonnel logs sent days and moments before the base lost contact with earth", apparently.
Lucheng Interstellar then showed five transmissions that provided clues on what the Horizon Lunar Colony is all about. Let me know what you think. In a post to Twitter, an image refers to a "specimen training module" with two missing inhabitants; one is for the pre-existing hero Winston, but another called Hammond is also mentioned. A Moon map will be a cool addition to the shooter, and perhaps it can also include the gravitational effects of battling in space. Could this be a tease that Hammond is going to be the next playable character?
Some Overwatch players have noted that Blizzard VP Jeff Kaplan did promise a new hero was in the works.
