Overwatch lore has for long time been flirting with the possible appearance of Doomfist, a character for whom the huge number of fans want to become the next hero in the game. While Blizzard has kept silent about this character for a long time, the new updates and extensions have introduced a part of the backstory that actually introduced Doomfist as a character.
Not that long ago, the latest update in Overwatch lore revealed that Numbani International Airport has been attacked and at that time it was not apparent who was responsible for that attack. However, the latest blog post about this issue revealed that Talon, characterized as the biggest villain in Overwatch, was actually responsible for that attack.
Talon and his Objective
That blog post revealed that Talon attacked Numbani International Airport for one single reason and that was to free Akande Ogundimu, with whom you are more familiar with the name Doomfist. The blog post also reveals that aircraft that could not be identified approached the location where Doomfist was being held, Helix Securities.
Once the aircraft landed, it revealed Reaper who did not have any trouble subduing security guards in the facility just to free Doomfist and to take him away with them. It has not been revealed whether anything or anyone else was taken from the facility together with Doomfist, but according to some sources, other breaches appeared as we at the same location.
After the complete destruction of Overwatch organization, Helix Securities took over the world’s leading role as a security force. However, the Doomfist’s escape, organized by Talon, has caused many to question the ability of Helix actually to provide security measures. Because of that, there are more and more of those who call for actions against Helix Securities as they seem not to be doing their job.
Helix Securities is actually a place where another Overwatch hero, Pharah, works as a security chief. Because of that, it is possible that we might be getting some information about Pharah’s backstory through the story of Doomfist.
Doomfist as a New Hero
Right now, it has not been revealed where Doomfist has gone, and many believe that he will be making his appearance in the in-game universe very soon. A couple of months ago, the hype was the largest because Doomfist’s name was mentioned in some of the test regions for the new patch. However, since then Blizzard has not confirmed or denied the possibility of Doomfist becoming a new hero.
However, that did not stop fans from obsessively awaiting information about the new patch. It is still not familiar when Blizzard might be releasing the new patch, but some indications might indicating that might be happening soon. The new pieces of the backstory have just made fans to demand Doomfist to become the new Overwatch hero even more. The Times of Numbani report that revealed that Talon is responsible for the attack on the airport suggest that the inclusion of Doomfist in the gameplay might be right around the corner.
