Blizzard has once again had information leaked referring to a reveal of Overwatch 2 at BlizzCon this coming weekend. This time around, though, it is in the form of some artwork that features an old (and, technically, a new) hero found on the Blizzard Gear Store.

The new and leaked artwork is subtly titled "ow2-fine-art-gallery.png" in the URL, showing a handful of the game’s most popular heroes going into battle. Among the heroes featured are Brigitte, Genji, Mercy, Mei, Reinhard, Tracer, and Winston. But perhaps the most interesting one in the lineup is none other than Echo, the rumored next hero coming to the hit first-person shooter title.

If you visit the web address for the artwork on the Blizzard store, you will only encounter a 403 error. This means that you do not have permission to view the file. However, if this artwork is really the official one for the talked about Overwatch 2 game, then you can expect it to go live (and even be officially announced) this coming weekend.

Interestingly, this follows the recently-leaked info, revealing the studio’s plausible plans to unveil the sequel at this year’s BlizzCon. The leaked info even discloses a couple of details on a new game mode titled "Push,” not to mention it suggests fans and players alike will learn more about the next Overwatch hero.

Echo is not a new figure in the game, especially since he was first teased around this time last year in Ashe's animated short. Ever since his introduction, fans have always thought about the possibility of the omnic-looking hero finding its way to the popular game.

It holds true that Blizzard introducing a new hero on the anniversary of the game’s initial reveal is fitting. But hey, since everything you hear or read right now remains unofficial, no one can really tell what the studio is up to. We will definitely know for sure once BlizzCon 2019 starts.
