Are we getting updated posters in Numbani?

General Discussion
It just seems odd not to have them yet. We had the first Numbani changes before Orisa even came.
What would they update? The museum posters were up before doomfist broke out as they are, why would they change how they look now?

If we can escort a broken glass of a stolen glove, surely we can have that too.

I mean, the whole idea of those posters was just to hype the new Doomfist. You can already tell by the prosthetics it is him and everyone already knows it is him lore wise (and Winston even fought him)

Right, I get what you're saying, hope my last comment didn't sound like a douche, I was honestly curious what you meant by update. But in a realistic sense, the posters were to set the scene of the map, and why you're escorting what you are(were). Updating the shaded out Doomfist just doesn't make sense just because we know what he looks like. Maybe if they update the map again I could see it, ya know change more stuff like it's been a while since the attack, but currently it's still very fresh. Technically the gauntlet is supposed to be on its way for the doomfist exhibit that the posters are for. Just un-shading a picture that's shaded because he is out now doesn't make sense when he wasn't out when they were put up. Get what I'm saying?
If they were gonna update it they should have done it a long time ago, since it seems to have been wrong since launch.

The Numbani museum announcer states the glove on display was used by The Scourge, which we can see is false because he's left-handed (poster) and the gauntlet is right-handed.

No one cared then and I doubt they care now... it was probably just a horizontal flip in Photoshop gone wrong anyway.
Numbani is in an "interesting" state right now with recent story developments. We've batted around some ideas: an update to the airport (giving Doomfist a well-deserved break from attacking it before every match... the cost in OR15s alone has been quite significant), an update to the museum, and some adjustments to the Extremely Desirable current payload. No final decision, but just wanted to mention we've discussed it.

:o
Previously we where escorting the Doomfist gauntlet. Now that Doomfist has broke out of jail and grabbed his gauntlet, what are we going to escort to the Doomfist exhibition?

The whole Numbani map seems pointless now, and hearing Widow and company talking about talon getting the doomfist sounds stupid, so perhaps update what we're carrying on the payload at the very least?

I think updating the poster seems smart too, or just removing them with something else......either works.

Also, please for the love of god update the airport. That loading room was one of the most beautiful loading rooms in the game, and it looks like crap now.
The destruction was cool for the Orisa/Doomfist hype, but now - please fix it. Don't be like World of Warcraft devs who took several YEARS to update the freaking park in Stormwind.

Why not make it random? Sometimes a fixed airport, sometimes the one after Doomfist's visit.

They'd never do that. It would be inconsistent with the lore.

The majority of the game is inconsistent with lore. So that argument isn't really valid.

I'm not talking about hero voicelines, I'm talking about the maps.
For example, the airport being destroyed to match the lore, the gauntlet being stolen to match the lore........
If it was reported in the Numbani Times that the airport was fixed - it would be fixed in-game - period.

put a cupcake in the payload!
everyone would stay near it just to get that cupcake
Things to put on the payload:
A mini payload
New posters
A statue of pre-nerf Roadhog standing on a pile of dead heroes
A neon sign saying "Stand here to win" with pyrotechnics

You should post more! Big stuff like this to the littler things like dad jokes overwatch edition are really entertaining and usually really insightful too.
Maybe the museum will no longer be about Doomfist, and the payload will change into delivering some other kind of artifact.
