Overwatch has been a smash hit since its release. Just last week it introduced competitive play to its modes to play in and has already committed to further supporting the games feature.
Earlier today, the official Overwatch Twitter shared an image that might leave a clue as to whom the next character to the game will be.

In the photo, it shows what appears to be a conversation between Mercy and Torbjörn.
The captions read as “, As discussed, this is the proposed rifle that could be equipped by medics in the field. Despite what my esteemed colleague will surely suggest, the application of her biotic technology is only intended to be used for healing.” – Torbjörn
“While Torbjörn has, as ever, put forth a very clever design for his latest weapon. I would like to remind everyone that my intention when agreeing to the development of different biotic delivery mechanisms was to save the lives of Overwatch agents and others in need of medical aid. With this latest proposal, it is clear to me that we are on the slippery slope to modifications that will inevitably result in a weaponized version of this technology: something that I have been completely opposed to from the beginning.” – Mercy
In another official Tweet, the Brazilian Twitter also included additional information by including A. Amari. This could be Ana Amari, the mother to current Overwatch character Pharah, and is also a sharp-shooter. This quite possibly adds to the other two current long range shooters with Widowmaker and Hanzo.

Blizzard has already confirmed that DLC going forward will continue to be free, so gamers will not have to worry about how much the content would cost.
