One of the most popular Overwatch streamers could be making his return to the game, as YouTuber TimTheTatman teased a broadcast and fans think this could be signs that a big announcement is on the way.

TimTheTatman played quite a lot of Overwatch back when he was still a Twitch streamer. However, like many big names on the platform such as xQc, he moved on from the game in favor of other titles such as Warzone.

Now, the streamer has teased he will finally play the game again just as expectations for some big Overwatch 2 news reach new highs.

The question is, is the potential return of TimTheTatman streaming Overwatch connected to something bigger?

“We know that Blizzard has used Tim before to announce new content for Overwatch, most recently with Echo. He got the exclusive first look of Echo in a stream with Jeff Kaplan when she was released, and even had say as to the exact second she got pushed to PTR,” a user wrote.

“I haven’t followed Tim in a long time, but these folks who’ve moved on to other games for over a year now would not about to randomly move back for no reason,” another said.
