Overwatch Teaser Suggests Torbjorn’s Daughter Will Be Next Hero

Published

on

Everyone is trying to figure out just who will be joining Overwatch’s roster of heroes and there seems to be some speculation that Torbjorn’s daughter will be the new character.

A second Overwatch Teaser has been released and it is a written letter written by Torbjorn to his wife detailing the events after Operation White Dome and suggested that Reinhardt might name the daughter that his wife is currently pregnant with.

Many believe that the daughter he is referring to is Brigitte Lindholm, who was revealed in the Honor and Glory short shown at BlizzCon back in 2017.

Here is the letter:

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.

While there are no additional details it’s not hard to make the connection to Brigitte as the next hero coming to Overwatch.

Riot Games Victims of Cyberattack

Published

Riot Games

Riot Games issued a statement on Wednesday saying that they  received a ransom email after hackers stole source code for League of Legends and Teamfight Tactics, with the attack also targeting its legacy anticheat platform, according to an official release.

“Needless to say, we won’t pay,” Riot said in the statement.  “While this attack disrupted our build environment and could cause issues in the future, most importantly we remain confident that no player data or player personal information was compromised.”

Riot Games continued by saying that it’s been working to assess the leak’s impact on anticheat as “any exposure of source code can increase the likelihood of new cheats emerging.” The company added that “experimental features” were also exposed, saying that “most of this content is in prototype and there’s no guarantee it will ever be released.”

Riot Games first announced the hack back on January 20th, saying it was a “social engineering attack.”
