Blizzard Entertainment previously shared a letter introducing their 30th hero, who is described as having the "Devil's own luck" after he fled Captain Cuerva's Talon squad.

It read: "I know better than to underestimate Baptiste. I helped train him myself, and he was one of our best.

"I've never known a medic to be such a good shot, and his adaptability to new situations is a rare talent. "All of us have seen our fair share of conflict, but Baptiste was built to survive. I swear he has the Devil's own luck."

And now it has been confirmed that he will make his entrance on March 19.

The new addition to the game comes after Blizzard unveiled a brand new assault map in Paris.

Meanwhile, the developers previously insisted they aren't interested in creating 'Overwatch 2'.

The hugely popular team-based multiplayer first-was launched in May 2016, but despite the game's increasing age, Blizzard aren't thinking about creating a sequel to the title, as they say there's still so much they can do with the existing game.

Senior Game Producer Matthew Hawley said: "I think at the core sitting here at the two-year anniversary, we've had a wildly successful 6v6 shooter game which has blown us away with how the community has responded to it. We dip our toes into different areas here and there with the Archives event and Junkenstein. But I think our focus is really on keeping the community engaged with the 6v6 shooter that we have on the live service."

Whilst Assistant Game Director Aaron Keller added: "Running a live service game takes a lot of work and I hope the community knows we have been committed to continually improving the game and creating content. What people might not realise is the team now is significantly bigger than what it was when we shipped the game, and we have put all of that into working on the live game and the new maps, heroes, and events like Anniversary. At least for the time being, [supporting Overwatch] is our focus right now, and we're excited to work on this game."
