Update, February 26: Torbjörn's daughter could be Overwatch’s next hero.
Earlier this week, the Overwatch Twitter channel tweeted a declassified report that detailed the aftermath of operation White Dome, a strike against “a remaining pocket of omnic resistance” in Turkey. The operation should have been a routine Overwatch mission but the team was ambushed by omnics, resulting in Reinhardt saving a severely injured Torbjörn.
An update to the story has now been released, showing a letter Torbjörn wrote to his wife during his recovering, and teasing his daughter may be the next Overwatch hero.
Here's what we know about who could be Overwatch's next hero.
Torbjörn's previously unpublished letter is now available to read on Overwatch’s Lore update blog.
The letter explains that Torbjörn's arm was amputated due to the severity of his injuries, but that he was determined to create a prosthesis to replace it. Clearly, it worked, as the Torbjörn we know today has a prosthetic arm. However, last year’s Uprising event allowed us to get a glimpse of the younger, two-armed Swede with the Ironclad skin.
