On April 25 the Overwatch team put out another lore video that could contain hints about future content for the game.[ad name=”article2″]
The main antagonist in Storm Rising, Maximilien, is featured in the teaser video from April 25, which is a clip of his interrogation by Overwatch.
“I wouldn’t have it said I was being difficult in this interview, so,” Max said the recording. “Doomfist will be in Singapore in three weeks time.”
Maximilien also mentions he hopes Overwatch can “do him a favor” before revealing where Doomfist is located.
“I trust you will leave me out of any discussions you have with him, hm?” Max asked. “It has been a pleasure doing business with you.”

The only solid clues we have from this teaser are “Singapore” and “three weeks time”. Three weeks from when the teaser was released would be May 16.
One possibility is that May 16 will be when the Overwatch Anniversary event will begin and along with the event, we’ll get a new map set in the city-state of Singapore.
In previous years the Anniversary event has started soon after the Archives event ends, usually in late May, so the May 16 start date would be in line with that.
We don’t know for sure exactly what is being teased in the new video, but one thing is for sure: come May 16 we should have our answer.
