    Any chance the Junker Queen will be released this year?

    Seems like Blizzard is releasing 2-3 new characters in Overwatch a year. Any chance Junker Queen could be one of them?

    And if so, do you think she'll be a tank?

    I want an omnic DPS hero that plays more like soldier than the other DPS heroes.

    I could be wrong, but feel like they need to vary up the gender of new characters a bit more, so I wouldn't expect her to be the next one. But I do think the next one will probably either be a Tank or Defense hero. There is some fairly well-founded speculation that the next hero might be Sanjay Korpal as a Tank wearing Hard Light armor.

    There's a lot of speculation about a Chimpanzee Support named Hammond too.

    I wouldn't expect another villain support immediately after Moira.

    Maybe defense, based around disrupting and annoying the enemy more than actually attacking them, like the Jockey from Left 4 Dead 2. A beefier, melee version of Sombra.

    As for Junker Queen, she looks like a female Roadhog. I could see her kit being a combination of Doomfist's skill-based attacks, but with a blunt weapon that would feel more like Reinhardt's hammer.

    Either of these characters could also work as a tactician with AI minions. Squishy "turrets" that would patrol around and harass the enemy. That's a role that doesn't really exist in the game yet.

    We don't know if Hammond is a villain, we don't know the whole backstory. Same way that Doomfist was surprisingly a villain.

    Talon needs a Tank though. Also I believe we are a bit overdue for a Defense Role hero as we have yet to receive a new one.

    Isn't he responsible for there being no humans in Horizon anymore? He definitely seems like an antagonist at the very least.

    That's the story we have, but we don't know if that's true. Also antagonist =/= villain, so he didn't want to be experimented on anymore? It's planet of the apes in Overwatch, he took his fellow primates and helped them to escape.

    All Overwatch villains have their reasons, none are chaotic evil. They're still called villains because their actions tend to harm more people than they benefit.

    This is what I'd like to see next, personally. All that's missing for an all Talon-team, now that we got Moira as a Support, is a Tank. I'm all the more disappointed that Doomfist wasn't a Tank, since he seems like the kind of guy who would be leading the charge in a Talon mission.

    Sorry, but no. Doomfist is definitely chaotic evil. His only objective is to destroy omnics and cause chaos from that. In turn, anyone who sides with him is also considered evil, Reaper, Moira, Widowmaker, even Sombra to an extent even though it's fairly clear that Sombra would backstab Talon if she found a better ally.

    Aren't the Junkers a third faction?

    Definitely would like to see more of them. Love their Mad Max style.

    Neither Doomfist nor Talon itself is explicitly anti-omnic. There is an omnic member of Talon's inner circle, after all. The only reason why Doomfist and Talon are pushing the conflict between humans and omnics is because Doomfist believes that humanity needs conflict, in general, to advance itself and even those members of Talon who might not necessarily agree with that philosophy still presumably benefit somehow from the continued chaos.

    Of all the members of Talon, only Reaper has shown any anti-omnic tendencies, but even then, that might be more the fact that he seems to hate everyone and everything these days, not just omnics specifically.

    I hope we see another defensive type. Soon.

    People were surprised Doomfist is a villain? I thought it was always rather obvious.

    What? You don't remember all of those Doom-related superheros you loved growing up?

    Like remember Dr.Doom the super hero from the Fantastic Four?

    If you read the comic Doomfist only works with him because he's the best in his field, as soon as he loses his usefulness Doomfist will break him, same as Zarya working with her Omnic hacker to track Sombra, the difference is Zarya didn't and after reading the comic they put out for her probably wouldn't ever without good cause.

    How would it be obvious? He was hyped as a hero besides the fact the Doomfist we know wasn't even introduced until he made the appearance in game. We knew of the Doomfist legend and we knew the Overwatch Doomfist was dead.

    Just spit-balling here, but Doomfist sounds rather... villainous. I certainly wouldn't have been surprised he was evil. I'd have been surprised had he not been evil.

    Yeah exactly like my favorite super hero, Dr. Doom.

    Doomfist sounds like the hero we need to bring hope for the future and a real sense of optimism.

    I did read the comic, which is how I even know about Maximilien at all, but don't recall that part. Is it specifically because Max is an omnic though, or simply because Doomfist doesn't like/trust him as an individual?

    His name has "Doom" in it and literally the first mention of him is that he fought and was beaten by Winston, the character immediately shown to be a good guy who protects children caught in the middle of firefights.
