New Blizzard leak reveals Overwatch 2 artwork ahead of BlizzCon

Is there an Echo in here?

Blizzard has managed to leak yet another tidbit of info suggesting a reveal of Overwatch 2 at BlizzCon this weekend. This time, it's in the form of some artwork featuring old (and one new) hero found on the Blizzard Gear Store.

The new artwork, subtly titled "ow2-fine-art-gallery.png" in the URL, shows a few of Overwatch's most popular heroes going into battle. Brigitte, Tracer, Reinhardt, Mei, Genji, Winston and Mercy are among those featured, as well as Echo - who's rumoured to be the next hero coming to the game.

If you try visiting the web address for the artwork on the Blizzard store, you'll be met with a 403 error, meaning you don't have permission to view the page. If this artwork is indeed official Overwatch 2 art however, it's likely the page will go live if it's announced this weekend.

This follows the recently-leaked info from ESPN, revealing Blizzard's potential plans to unveil Overwatch 2 at this weekend's BlizzCon, disclosing a few details on a new game mode titled "push", as well as suggesting we'll learn more about Echo.

Echo was first teased around this time last year in Ashe's animated short, and since then, fans have wondered when we'll see the omnic-looking character make its way to the game.

It would seem fitting for the new hero to arrive on the anniversary of its initial reveal, but with industry insider Rod Breslau backtracking on the hero 32 information, who knows what Blizzard is planning?
