After the first beta, an Overwatch 2 player claims he’s found more evidence that the Junker Queen is the next new character to join the roster.
The overwatch 2 beta gave players their first taste of what’s to come in the sequel, like the new team balance and various character reworks. It also gave players a better look at the world’s newest heroine, Sojourn, and recent leaks suggest she may not be the only new addition to the colorful roster, as the Junker Queen may also be on the way. Following these leaks, an investigative player claims to have found more evidence that the Junker Queen leaks are legit, and soon she’ll be bringing her brand of chaos to the game.
overwatch 2 is the sequel to Blizzard’s 2016 multiplayer shooter, overwatch, and picks up right after Blizzard’s series of animated shorts, which sees the titular team come together to protect the world. The game will once again focus on PvP, which will launch first and has gone through several changes since the first game, including reducing teams from six to five players and limiting each team to just one tank. It will also feature a permanent PvE option, scheduled to be released at a later date, and allow players to choose between narrative-focused story missions and horde-style hero missions.
As mentioned above, the overwatch community has been rampant with speculation recently after reported leaks, the Junker Queen would be the second new character introduced in overwatch 2. Reddit user Stuck-in-Orbit claims to have found more evidence suggesting the leak is real by taking a closer look at the queen’s alleged skill icons. Orbit says in his post that after adjusting the light tones of the icons and stacking them in the right order, players can see one side of the queen’s face in the background.
Orbit also reiterates the vast amount of official art that Blizzard has released featuring the queen, both in and out of the games. This includes various pieces of promotion art, appearances in some characters’ origin tales, and even an in-game spray.
As far as potential new characters go, there’s still a lot of mystery surrounding Queen Junker, despite the impact she’s had on a number of characters. overwatch original Junkrart and Roadhog formerly named Junkertown, where she rules, home before being expelled for their destructive tendencies and inability to pay the queen’s monetary demands. Wrecking Ball also lived in Junkertown for a short time, being hailed by the Queen and others for his mastery of the city’s mechanical battle rings before setting out to find his own way.
