It's just around the corner…
Blizzard has followed up on its fictional front page spread with a brand new teaser for what’s likely the upcoming Overwatch Archives event.
It’s entitled “Storm Rising” and it’ll be taking place between 16th April to 6th May.
The teaser comes in the form of a decrypted voice message from an intriguing new hero named “Sojourn”. She seems to be in a position of authority, contacting Soldier:76 (Commander Morrison) to propose a new method of tracking down the notorious Doomfist through his shady accountant Maximilien.

“Commander Morrison. I have a proposal. We’re going at catching Doomfist the wrong way. He’s clean, but his accountant Maximilien? Follow the money and you’ll find the dirt you need. I know you’re worried about sending the strike team out again after what happened with Reinhardt. But I’ve been working with them and I know they’re ready.”
After her proposition, she outlines who’s likely playable for this event.
“I’m putting Tracer in charge, with Mercy, Winston, and Genji in support. She’s grown as a leader since the King’s Row mission, and I know you’ll agree. Call me back when you get this. And commander – trust me, they’ll get it done. Sojourn out.”
While further information on Storm Rising’s content is thin on the ground right now, it’s highly likely players will be heading to Havana. Blizzard released a fictional newspaper spread as its first teaser for this event, and it clearly hints towards a raid on sea fort, or even a huge rum distillery. Yum yum.
