Fans of Overwatch and those looking to know more on the latest Hero to grace the game, also those who will be at this year's SDCC, let it be known that you will have the chance to get a behind the scenes look at the new hero as well as ask the team questions about it all. It looks like Blizzard has set up a panel just for all of you out there with those Q & A possibilities. At least if you can put down Overwatch long enough to head out the nighttime panel on the show floor. That and have access to the convention center given how passes sold out so quickly this year again. If you can get past all of that, then you have the chance to get in there and learn more about Doomfist before he officially comes to the game.
If I also had to guess, seeing as Overwatch is still such a wildly popular game, there will be a stream of it all or a video uploaded of the whole experience if you missed out or couldn't make it. I also have a feeling that this could also be where the team will offer up an official release for the character as, at the time of this writing, Doomfist was only in a beta build for it and not officially out there. It seems like it would be the case as it is rare to have a whole SDCC panel only for a single character in a game like Overwatch. That could just be me speculating though and it is nothing more than a lot of questions being asked that can't be answered by those on the panel. I guess we'll see.

What are your thoughts on this new panel for SDCC and Overwatch here? Do you think that we will get some official words or will it be a major fan service and nothing more given how Blizzard handles their releases? Do you think that there will be questions asked that could get them to slip or will it be a lot of the minutia questions with nothing more than super-fans asking for lore specifics about this character and many others? Let us and the world know down in the comments and then discuss. For more on Overwatch and all of these video game panels out at SDCC, be sure to keep checking back in here.
