Since our previous article on teasers for Overwatch’s next hero, Blizzard has released even more snippets of words and images that continue to seem as though they are leading towards the reveal of their next hero, #27. So far the direction seems to have changed, with people now wondering whether or not Blizzard is actually hinting at Torbjörn’s daughter being top candidate for her in game debut.

This comes after the initial release of a letter that Torbjörn wrote to his wife Ingrid after being in battle.

Although not in English, Blizzard provided the english translation which reads:

My dear Ingrid,

I know that by now you have gotten news of my injuries in our latest mission. While the descriptions may sound terrible, the doctors are quite sure I’ll make a full recovery. Even Angela came to visit me! On the matter of my arm, I promise to make it my first priority to construct a suitable prosthesis that will make everyone forget that it was ever gone. If only Angela’s dreams of tissue regeneration were a reality! I told her she should be working harder!

They tell me that you have not yet gone into labor, so I am holding out hope that I will be able to be by your side back home in Gothenburg when the time comes. Just wait a little longer for me!

You may have heard that Reinhardt is responsible for saving my life. I’ve heard the story at least four different times myself, already, each time more unbelievable than the last. Exaggerations, as you know how he can be. All the same, they’ve decided to award him a commendation for “conspicuous bravery.” Could two words better describe the big oaf?

He has been bothering me insufferably at my bedside. Half in jest, I suggested that if it would shut him up, I would allow him to name our daughter, as he has been badgering me about it these past months. He, of course, took me at my word. Truth be told, I had been considering making him her godfather, and I hope you’ll forgive me for making this decision without your consultation. We can only hope she doesn’t take after him too much.

I told him that you would have to agree to any name he chose, so let’s hope it’s a good one (though I fear that may be beyond his abilities, given some of the ridiculous names he gives the characters in his “true stories”). I’m getting sick of this hospital, so I am hoping to return soon.

Love,
Torbjörn

The next teaser was released today in the form of an image for a hammer, featuring its schematics and a caption that reads “I’ll knock some sense into you!”

At this current time it seems as though the focus has been shifted away from First Class Private Emre Sarioglu and more so towards Brigitte. Could this be her design in the image?
