The team name for the new Atlanta Overwatch League franchise appears to have been leaked early. *Update* The name has now been confirmed.

Atlanta teased an announcement for October 23, but it seems the official Overwatch League app may have jumped the gun a little.

In a short video released on the app, the team’s brand for the Overwatch League has been revealed as the Atlanta Reign.

Though the announcement has since been removed, the name and branding for Atlanta were captured by fans beforehand. Atlanta Reign’s colours will be primarily red and grey, and their logo features what looks like a phoenix over a crown-topped crest.

Though it might have happened a little earlier than they intended, Atlanta was already on course to be the first expansion team to announce their team brand. It remains to be seen whether their own official announcement will include roster details.

Next in line is the Toronto franchise, who have a reveal party scheduled for October 24. The event will see 350 fans in attendance and will also be live-streamed on Twitch.

The six other new franchises have also yet to reveal their branding, and with the exception of a couple of players all have also kept their rosters hidden so far. With the exclusive signing window for expansion teams having closed on October 7, imminent announcements seem more likely with every passing day.

The Overwatch League is set to return on February 14. It is possible there will be some pre-season matches before then, as there were for the first season, but so far no details have been announced.

*UPDATE: October 23*

The Atlanta Reign have officially confirmed their team brand.

An Overwatch racing game might not be all too far off now as a stylish new Workshop mode places heroes behind the wheel, allowing you to drive through any given map.

Driving a car is now possible in Overwatch thanks to the power of the Workshop. Players have modded their own custom vehicle into existence, allowing you to take it for a spin and drift through the game.

It’s not a simple trick that lets your hero move faster than usual. It’s a proper vehicle design that you can take control of and drive around. 

In fact, it’s modeled after the Lamborghini Aventador SV, giving you some style and some speed as you cruise through the world of Overwatch.

Ever wanted to drive a Lambo? Now you can… in Overwatch.

“I’ve turned Overwatch into a Streetwatch,” GraczCourier’s Gaming revealed on January 21. While it might look a little different to what you had in mind, it functions better than perhaps any Workshop vehicle to date.

A collection of pipes and electricity effects bring the template of the car to life. Players have complete control over the direction of the Lambo, along with its speed as well.

You can drift around corners, activate nitrous, and even change the radio station while you’re in the driver’s seat. Not only that, but the custom mode appears to work across every map in the game.

This means you can boost through Hanamura, take in the sights of Blizzard World, or jet around London on King’s Row. Handling looks to be extremely precise as an accompanying video showcased just what’s possible with the Aventador in Overwatch.

While it’s a blast to drive around, there’s a unique challenge to it as well. How fast can you get through your favorite map? How long can you drift in one attempt? You and your teammates can put it all to the test.

The flashy Workshop mode is available for anyone to check out in-game now. Try it out for yourself with the following Workshop code: 4XQP4
