‘Overwatch’ Fans Dig Deeper the Recent Video Teaser; Speculations & Expectations

Apr 04, 2017 08:59 AM EDT


"Overwatch" is now trending after Blizzard posted a cryptic message alongside with a short clip on Twitter that left fans asking for more details as they try to sue what's coming on April 11. On April 4, something baffling was posted in Blizzard's official Twitter account which appears to be referring to a major revelation coming next week.

"Overwatch," is a popular team-based first-person shooter game developed and published by Blizzard. The recent post which included a 20-second clip tells players that something big is coming but won't be revealed until April 11. According to Polygon, the mysterious post that appeared on Twitter created investigations by fans and a flurry of speculations as to what's really happening this coming April 11.

The clip from the recent teaser of "Overwatch" noted that all ability icons of seven heroes in the game can be seen in the video together with a reference to King's Row, saying that "King's Row entered into record seven years ago. Security clearance required: confidential." The message seems to be alluding to the popular map that is currently being improved with aesthetic alterations in the latest PTR builds of "Overwatch." A PTR patch was released last week which included texture appearances that were not felt by most players as the route remained the same.

"Some aspects of the art and lighting were updated to bring it in line with the newer maps and make it easier to make updates and changes in the future," said Principal Level Designer Dave Adams.

Reddit noted that the presence of a rotating Tracer in the 3D model can also be seen briefly in the clip. There's also a flyer that appears to be referencing to the Omnic Crisis as it states a mandatory robot registration as well as archive declassification which seems to be another reference.

Avid fans and players for "Overwatch" really baffled with the recent teaser that was released, where it created several theories and expectations for the game. Either way, we may have to wait until the stated date before we find out what it's all about.
