Blizzard’s Latest Overwatch Blog Post Teases Doomfist

Blizzard’s latest Play Overwatch post hints towards Doomfist’s addition.

Blizzard’s latest post on Play Overwatch was titled Talon Involvement Confirmed in Previous Attack on Helix Facility, and it basically confirms the upcoming addition of Doomfist. Doomfist has been rumoured to release alongside the Summer Games event found within the game’s coding files recently.

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.

It began in the early hours of the morning, when an unidentified aircraft approached the facility. Security initially reported that the craft had no passengers on board, based on radar scans. The craft passed through the range of the installation’s defense systems without incident, leading some to believe that Talon has moles within Helix. Video surveillance from within the compound revealed a black shadowy figure emerging from the craft and descending upon the prison grounds. The unidentified assailant easily overcame the Helix security agents, leaving over a dozen dead. Medical records of the casualties reveal injuries and cellular degeneration matching other incidents involving the mercenary known as the Reaper, all but confirming the incursion as a Talon attack.

What do you think of Doomfist’s addition to an already action-packed Overwatch roster?
