Blizzard started sharing new hero looks at BlizzConline last year, showing more high-tech and polished versions of Reaper, Widowmaker, and others.During the Summer Game Fest kickoff, Blizzard decided to share some more hero reworks. This time it was Sombra and Baptiste, who will have a few visual updates in Overwatch 2. But it clearly was not enough to please most fans.
Looking for me?

Baptiste had his color scheme changed from blue and orange to teal, grey, and white. But Sombra stole the show with her more subtle redesign. Still in purple, the new Sombra features fully purple hair, a little bit sleeker outfit, a spiral piece of tech on the shaved side of her head, and a face with a bit more expression. One noticeable difference was Sombra's muscle definition.

Even though many people found Sombra's look to be appealing, the Overwatch community immediately questioned Blizzard. A lot of people said that the new skins looked essentially the same as the old ones with some minor tweaks. Other fans responded that Blizzard "thought we were too dumb to notice."
"This was a very challenging design for us to update" pic.twitter.com/6YTECNlJqX— ???????????? ???????????????? ???????????????????????????????????????? (@PolyDepression) June 10, 2021 Is Overwatch 2 a real sequel?
The new hero designs brought up a familiar debate in the Overwatch fandom. Why is Overwatch 2 a sequel, and will there be enough new content to make it worth a second purchase? Is Overwatch 2 even a real sequel, or just a pricey content update?
Overwatch 2 has taken a long while to come out, but Blizzard developers have shown few updates over the last year. These have included new maps, new game modes, and new hero missions with skill trees and new abilities. Developers have also showcased some intended quality of life changes, like making weapons feel more powerful.
But many fans still feel that Overwatch 2 is a money grab and that most of these updates could have been brought to the existing game. Overwatch 2 is still in the works and new updates, campaigns, and heroes are on the way.

Jose Mourinho reveals Arnautovic told him he was better than Ibrahimovic, Adriano AND Crespo on first day at Inter Milan
JOSE MOURINHO has revealed that a teenage Marko Arnautovic told him he was better than the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Adriano.

And while the 58-year-old made his introductions, the Austrian forward wasn't shy.
SunSport columnist Mourinho recounted: "My technical director at Inter, Marco Branca, he arrived with that player that he followed and he wanted to bring over from Holland. He [Arnautovic] was 18.
“When Branca arrives with him we were training.
"They stay there on the touchline and in the middle of the training session I decided to go over and say hello to them.
“At the time, in my first season at Inter, my strikers were [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic, Adriano, Hernan Crespo and Julio Cruz.
“I go to Branca and Arnautovic, we shake hands and share a few words and Marko tells me: ‘Mister, I’m better than all of them.’"
Cracking up with laughter, the Portuguese then added: "Ibrahimovic, Adriano, Hernan Crespo and Julio Cruz – Marko is 18 and he’s better than all of them!"
Arnautovic went on to make just three appearances for Inter, before being flogged to FC Twente.5Hernan Crespo represented Inter with distinctionCredit: AP:Associated Press 5Adriano won numerous trophies with the Italian giantsCredit: Getty
