It ain't photoshopped: http://fotoforensics.com/analysis.php?id=64100552cbfb84e53cf13088afba6939f8c2c27e.707063&show=ela

As you can see in the Error-Level Analysis image, the detailed, opaque areas of the character appear to have the same error level as other detailed, opaque parts of the image, such as Junkrat's gun, the HUD, etc. The translucent parts of the character appear to have the same error level as the background behind it. This seems to indicate that this is an original, unedited screenshot taken directly from the game.

It would be easy enough for Blizzard to implement: make it a random event with an extremely low probability; across millions of players, it would still happen enough to be seen by someone.

That other poor thread has been significantly derailed by naysayers who don't know what they're talking about. :(
I'm just imagining Blizz devs reading through these threads and smiling mischievously.
The only thing that bothers me about this is that her model and silhouette looks a little too similar to Ana's.
Thank you! you da real MVP

I dont even understand the downvote storm the post got, It didnt look fake to me, maybe because it was on the lowest possible quality, but idk.

the effect on her invisible parts also looks like the sombra video we had today.
Spy creeping around here.
But but but... no shadow.
O_O my god...

Edit: Dios Mio
I saw a Twitter video of someone playing zen, hearing footsteps and a voiceline woke leaving spawn on dorado on defense. They looked up at the balcony and walkway, and a blurry/invisible/cloaked figure we running across the walkway
i........what
no

there's no way

omg

edit: can someone make a thread with collected 'evidence' (someone mentioned some twitter posts) so people can analyze/debunked without running through a bunch of threads? pls

Do you have a link to it? I'd really like to watch it! :0
Now, the fact her look is close to Ana's could just a placeholder to mess with people given all the Ana info on the table and Sombra's 'leak' of Ana's medical records (the heartbeat that led to the moment in crime website"

That being said....color scheme looks to fit the black/purple/white themes from the skulls and text she has displayed. Also, her helmet, while it looks like it could belong to a sniper such as ana....(seems close to the Shrike skin in my opinion)...it looks more like a full dive hacker interface....like being able to see the virtual/digital world overlayed on the real, as if she can see all the connections and hidden links in the world....thus Information Is Power.

It looked like they had low graphics settings so the character model wouldn't have a shadow.

Considering the crosshair and the cloaked figure move at the exact same speed I doubt that video is real.
Video is probably not real. If she really DID appear that way, wouldn't there be more videos out there of this? I mean, that blur makes a loud noise. Feel like people would notice it.

EDIT: Also, the video has comments and likes disabled, which feels fishy.

!@#$! I have seen that! For real! I was wondering what the hell was the shimmer flashing by me. I did not think much of it until I saw this.
