Overwatch is teasing its first new hero, here's what you need to know

I'm still trying to learn how to play D.Va, but Blizzard is already gearing up for Overwatch's first post-release hero. The developer Tweeted out a "confidential" internal memo showing a new kind of sniper rifle that can be used to heal, teasing some exciting news down the line.

If you're not knee-deep in Overwatch Lore, here's a quick primer on all the significant elements of that teaser and what they could mean for the game:

With Competitive Play live across all platforms, Blizzard can move on to making free new heroes, maps, and modes. Personally, I would be very excited to try out a support sniper, since I enjoy healing and only ever play Hanzo or Widowmaker when I need to kill some turrets. Hopefully we don't have to wait too long to be properly introduced to the biotic rifle's current owner.
