A few teasers have popped up over the past week, hinting that Hero 27 is on the way. It also hints that we may see Torbjorn’s daughter, Brigette, join our heroes.

One day before season 9 begins we get some changes for both Doomfist and Mei as expect. Additionally, Sombra’s buffs have arrived and look to make her more pliable.
