Where do you guys come up with all these names? Is there other lore being released outside of the battle.net app that I'm not reading or something?
Check the comics
And we got the point, where people just started there own threads. (Copy cats)

I would love if The Junker Queen was the next hero, but that’s just me.
Yeah cut those three out after Jeff’s hints


I'm not finding these hints, what were they?

From what I know/have heard:

1) Hero 27 is 'meta-changing'
2) Hero 27 has been hinted at
3) We already know who Hero 27 is(As in we've seen them/know their name already. They're not like Orisa which came as a total surprise)

Those are the only hints I've heard of.

Candidates for hero 27

1. Sanjay, Sym’s Boss (Though it’s too Obvious)
No Reason needed(Though again too obvious)

2. Liao (Last founding member of Overwatch)
(Reason “finish” upcoming uprising event with more lore him and 26 )

3. Hammond (who I still think is jet pack cat)
Reason: upcoming lore hinted at with a recent change to Human Winston Office


The Queen.

Oh, that's nothing new then.

Number 2 and 3 are basically the same and can apply to a vast degree.

Sanjay for example is established and has strong ties with current heroes. (Lucio, Symmetra, Moira, Reaper, and Doomfist)

Queen has been speculated about ever since Junkertown. We even have a voice.

It could apply to characters like these. But...

Anyone on the signed photos in McCree's old diner could also apply.

Any of the of the old concept arts from Helio to Momma Hong to Troy.

I was hoping we got a new hint cause our current ones point us in no certain direction.

Think we can scratch out any other old Concept arts related(cause of 2.)(Though Hammond goes around this, cause he was Hinted Somewhere else.)

Top 3 still apply till a new hint is given.

(Currently siding with 3 cause of the wheelchair addition.)
they could always just pull something entirely out of left field again like they did with Ana and Orisa. That'd be neat.
give us Maximilien or give us death
It's going to be Widow's husband.

Going to be kind of hard with Gerard long dead.

Next is the junker queen. No need to speculate anything else.


Jeff said what he said to play us, it will be someone else (she will come straight after #27, exactly like when we get orisa instead of doomfist, and then doomfist).
Well dive likely gonna die with the next next ptr stuff.....sooooo.

Due to junkertown hint, i believe queen will be next

......Junkertown doesn’t have an actual hint, just like Ares is not a hero or a being in the Overwatch lore.

You guys still think this is an Arg (lol)

If anything the new wheelchair is an actual hint. (to what, I have no clue yet only theories.)
I'm expecting a hint from a completely different hero next:
- Jeff's "She's soooooo not nice" tease = Queen
- Wheelchair in Lijiang Tower = possible Liaos or Hammond
- Sanjay's theory reply by Bill = Sanjay

I think they are deliberately muddying the waters now

Most likely but if anything Liao is the one we really have no clue with. (So that can’t really muddy that up.) Since all we know, he is one of the founding members.(That’s it, no other info provided.)

If anything it’s the one hero they have not touched in their teasing.

I won't put it past Blizzard to make Liao the tech person of the founding members and make him/her someone important in Lijiang Tower's space program or something. Liao is like Maggie in the Simpsons when Mr Burns got shot... I'm not leave it up to chance.
Guys...It`s Mama Hong. No way it`s not Mama
