It’s been a while since we’ve seen an Overwatch animated character short. Even Orisa, the game’s most recent hero, only got a short introduction video.
Blizzard also hasn’t been releasing any new story comics since the one from the holiday period. This made many fans think the developer abandoned the story. Luckily, this is not the case.
On a thread on the official forums titled “Story cancelled?”, replied the lead writer Michael Chu to his fans saying “they have a lot in the works, with Orisa and her story being the first release of the year.” “One of our goals for 2017 is to try to have more frequent story-related updates and content, so we’re very busy with that,” Chu added.
Michael Chu also gave us a little mysterious tease, “And a little something else is coming just around the corner, so look out for it!”
