Blizzard announced that the next new Overwatch 2 character will be Lifeweaver and promised more details this week.

Next New Overwatch 2 Character Is Lifeweaver

Activision Blizzard took to Twitter to tease its next new Overwatch 2 character Lifeweaver. There’s very little to the initial announcement. It confirms that the person will be a Support hero. It also noted that more information will appear on April 4, 2023, ahead of the unit’s season 4 debut. Season 4 will begin early this month.

Here’s the official new character announcement, which includes initial Lifeweaver Overwatch 2 art.

As a reminder, Support heroes like Mercy in Overwatch 2 tend to focus on healing allies, though they can also deal damage. Kiriko, Moira and Zenyatta are other examples.

The last new Overwatch 2 character to appear was Ramattra. That character is a Tank who joined the roster back in December 2022. Before that, Kiriko joined the game.

As a reminder, season 3 is just coming to a close in Overwatch 2. Some of the notable additions this time around were Roadhog’s Catch-a-Mari mode and a One Punch Man crossover.

Overwatch 2 is available on the Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Windows PC, and more details about Lifeweaver will arrive on April 4, 2023.
