Does gun blueprint reveal next character coming to Overwatch?

Overwatch is a game like Marmite, you either love it or hate it and this goes true for us at TiX. I personally love the game and therefore was excited to see a post by Blizzard yesterday on their twitter feed giving us potentially the most reliable clue to date on the next playable character for the game.

Overwatch Gun Blueprint

As you can see from the blueprint above there is a discussion around a Biotic Rifle that has Mercy’s Caduceus Staff and Soldier: 76’s Biotic Field healing ability incorporated in to it. This leads to the assumption that the weapon above will be used for healing at range but also poisoning perhaps if Mercy’s comments are anything to go by. So is this the infamous character called Sombra who is referenced by Reaper in one of his voice lines, “Where’s Sombra when you need her?” and who has also been discovered in hints that have been hidden in the Mexican Map Dorado.

So watch this space and let’s hope that Blizzard keep to their word when they stated that all new characters coming to Overwatch would be free.
