Overwatch 2 logo “leaked” – but is it real?

Fans are abuzz with rumors and speculation about a possible sequel or expansion to Overwatch and now, a week before BlizzCon 2019, we could have our first solid leak on the upcoming announcement.

“Overwatch 2” has been the elephant in the spawn room for Overwatch fans over the last year and there have been plenty of hints and “leaks” about what it will be, but nothing about what it could look like, until now.

Twitch streamer Metro (who correctly leaked Ashe before BlizzCon 2018) made several predictions about the upcoming announcement, including what would be shown during Overwatch’s allotted time at BlizzCon 2019.

What’s the latest Overwatch 2 “leak”?

On Saturday, October 26, a Twitter user by the name of WeakAuras posted an image they claimed was an official leak of the Overwatch 2 logo.

The image features Tracer next to the classic Overwatch branding, but with a “2” added in orange and white right next to the logo.

Other than the logo and Tracer, there’s not much to go on from the leak as far as what Overwatch 2 will actually be like gameplay-wise.

We might not even get to see any gameplay, or anything more than a logo for Overwatch 2 at BlizzCon this year, which just makes this leak even more potentially massive.

It is important to note though that this is still just a leak so there’s no way to tell if the logo is legit or just a very well-done photoshop job.

WeakAuras told Dexerto they didn’t have any more Overwatch 2 leaks besides the Tracer image and would only reveal that it was sent to them by a friend.

Dexerto has reached out to Blizzard as well about the leak, and will update when we hear back.

What do we know about Overwatch 2 so far?

Talk about a possible Overwatch expansion or sequel started flying after a report from Kotaku in June 2019 that Blizzard had moved staff from working on an FPS StarCraft game to other projects, including “Overwatch 2”.

Since then more leaks and hints have slowly dripped out, but the weeks before what could be the biggest BlizzCon ever for Overwatch have been a full-on shower.

We probably won’t know for sure though if any of the leaks and predictions about Overwatch 2 turn out to be legit until BlizzCon gets going on November 1.

Overwatch update gives Winston Sombra and D.Va new Karaoke voice lines

Overwatch’s last patch on November 19 has finally given Sombra, Winston, and D.Va new Easter Egg karaoke voice lines on the Busan map.

The ability for certain heroes to sing on Busan isn’t exactly a secret, but it is a fun little Easter Egg hidden away. Devs have apparently been hard at work adding heroes to this exclusive club recently as well.

A few months ago Ashe, Baptiste, and Widowmaker joined the club, and, just before 2020 wraps up, Winston, Sombra, and D.Va have finally been let in on the fun as well.

The karaoke spawn room on Busan lets Overwatch heroes sing their hearts out.

Apparently added during the November 19 patch, these new voice lines weren’t found by players until a few days later when videos started to pop up. Sure enough, all three have new voice lines, though we wouldn’t exactly call what Sombra is doing “singing.”

Instead of laying down any bars, Sombra simply discusses the merits of hacking, pays off all of the neighbors’ bills (how nice), and changes the Karaoke bar landlord’s WiFi password (not so nice).

Winston’s two lines play on him being both a great ape and a great scientist. One has him explaining the first law of thermodynamics to players: “energy cannot be created or destroyed.” His other is about clapping with his hands and feet since, you know, he’s a gorilla.

Finally, the pièce de résistance, at least for all of the D.Va players out there, are her new Karaoke lines. In Overwatch lore, Hana ‘D.Va’ Song is both an esports champion and K-POP star, so you’d think she would have gotten her lines much sooner than she did.

If the Tank singing “Pew Pew Pew” isn’t adorable enough, she also proudly proclaims, “someone has to save the world, it might as well be me,” along with another line in her native tongue, Korean.

This brings the number of heroes who can sing on Busan up to 17 with Winston, Sombra, and D.Va; which is officially more than half of the 32 heroes currently in the game.
