Given a information we already have, this teaser usually serve points towards Torbjörn’s daughter Brigitte as a many expected claimant to subsequent join Overwatch’s favourite roster. And given a blueprints outline some kind of hammer-type weapon, we can presupposition that a arriving hero’s pack will have a m�lange member of some sort.
Original Story: Earlier this week, a mysterious twitter seemed on a Overwatch comment deliberating a declassified goal news where Overwatch Chief Engineer Torbjörn Lindholm suffered poignant injuries, yet was saved due to a aplomb of Lieutenant Reinhardt Wilhelm. We assumed it was a initial teaser for Overwatch’s stirring 27th hero.
A second teaser went out today, this time an in-universe minute from Torbjörn to his profound wife, deliberating a events that transpired during and after a aforementioned Operation “White Dome.” Critically, a minute mentions that as interjection for saving his life, Torbjörn jokingly suggested that Reinhardt could name his soon-to-be-born daughter—a idea that Reinhardt took to be truthful:
“You might have listened that Reinhardt is obliged for saving my life. I’ve listened a story during slightest 4 opposite times myself, already, any time some-more unimaginable than a last. Exaggerations, as we know how he can be. All a same, they’ve motionless to endowment him a admiration for “conspicuous bravery.” Could dual difference improved report a large oaf?
He has been bothering me insufferably during my bedside. Half in jest, we suggested that if it would close him up, we would concede him to name a daughter, as he has been disturbing me about it these past months. He, of course, took me during my word. Truth be told, we had been deliberation creation him her godfather, and we wish you’ll pardon me for creation this preference but your consultation. We can usually wish she doesn’t take after him too much.
I told him that we would have to determine to any name he chose, so let’s wish it’s a good one (though we fear that might be over his abilities, given some of a absurd names he gives a characters in his “true stories”). I’m removing ill of this hospital, so we am anticipating to lapse soon.”
This unborn daughter roughly positively grows adult to be Brigitte Lindholm, who we formerly met in a Honor and Glory charcterised short that debuted during BlizzCon final year. Knowing how Blizzard likes to deliver or spirit during stirring heroes in unconnected media in allege of them fasten a Overwatch roster—Moira seemed in a Doomfist comic Masquerade 3 months before her entrance as a hero, for example—it seems flattering transparent that Torbjörn’s daughter Brigitte will many expected be a subsequent Overwatch hero.
