We’re gearing up to unveil the next Hero and Battleground to enter the Nexus during a live broadcast on Monday, June 4, and we hope you’ll tune in for our live reveal celebration! Lead Content Designer Matt Cooper and Lead Hero Designer Matt Villers will be joined by HGC Europe casters Tim 'Trikslyr' Frazier and Thomas ‘Khaldor’ Kilian to bring you all the details.

How to Watch

When: 10:00 a.m. PDT on Monday, June 4

Stick around for the entire hourlong show for an epic showmatch on the new Battleground with members of the Heroes development team. We can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on, so be sure to set a reminder for 10:00 a.m. PDT on June 4. Until then, we’ll see you in the Nexus.

We started speculating that the next Hero may be Sombra based on Overwatch's 2nd Anniversary Event and the subsequent HGC teaser.

Who would you like to see next? Let us know in the comments!

Well I think we can safely eliminate the Diablo franchise since we just got Deckard.     And Starcraft we recently got Fenix, so yeah, a Warcraft hero seems likely.
 

...then again it could be the innkeeper from hearthstone 😛

Agreed. Moira or Orisa would be way more interesting heroes imo. Even Reinhardt would be cooler.

Heroes with Barriers from OW are very unlikely since they not fit HotS gameplay, you can't seriously put a wall down every few seconds making your team invincible to whatever enemy throw at you while HotS common tanks can just bodyblock and CC.

I think they put Zarya and DVA for that reason since those have no kind of walls, they coulda make Roadhog following this logic but he's 100% identical to Stitches even in the shape, the only different thing is the ult that push enemy away instead of slowing them.

From OW the most likely candidates are Sombra, Moira, Soldier76, Zenyatta, Brigitte (with the barrier becoming a self shield with hp like Zarya's), and I think the most likely one being Doomfist since he has the most abilities of all that coulda easy go in Heroes untouched (3 basic abilites that are all attacks).

So if OW gonna be I bet on Doomfist sooner or later will join the Nexus

Ohhh yes, I'd like that. Harth Stonebrew deserves his spot! We could always use another dwarf.

Zenyatta, Orisa and Reinhardt are the only Overwatch characters I really want in Heroes of the Storm.

There's actually quite a few good candidates from overwatch that could work and Sombra is definitely on that list but Doomfist, Mei, Moira, Brigitte, Zenyatta, and Orisa are all solid choices. I don't think it will be another support in a row though so that eliminates a few of them. Sombra is a fine choice though as her kit translates fairly easily to this game.

Definitely OW hero in my opinion, we last got one in November with Hanzo while Maiev was just before Fenix. Hope its either Mei(Unlikely), Sombra, Brigitte (Or Reinhardt) or Moira.

 

Praying for either Brigitte(Specialist like Medivh in terms of support) or Sombra.

I definitly put my bet on an overwatch hero too...probably a tank.

Why no Warcraft hero? Well, I think we will see Anduin with or near the release of the new WoW-Expansion...soooo...but the Innkeeper would still be pretty neat.

(but as always I hope for Kyle Blackthorne)

Time for an Overwatch Warrior maybe? I'm betting on Winston cuz OW anniversary feels like a good occasion for an OG hero.

Id like to see winston too because of how original the character is but I worry he doesn't have a big enough kit to make him into a good HotS hero.

This I like this :))) Would be really interested to see what they would give Anduin for a kit

If it's Sombra and she's not a specialist, I have zero idea what will be.

Although I really want Reinhardt in here. Barrier Field could be weird to implement but I just want to charge around as a big German man screaming "CATCH PHRASE!"

I'm guessing Reinhardt, and Anduin after that? I don't like OW heroes in HotS too much, though.

Anduin would make a lot of sense given BfA, but I'm a bit skeptical about him. I think Velen deserves to be in HotS so we can get our first Draenei as well Priest in the game.

Leaks are out, it's going to be Yrel.

The one in the upper left is definitely Muradin. And right next to Yrel there is a Spirit Healer... Maybe a skin for Auriel?

But where is this leak from?

Someone posted in NotParadox's Discord group, no idea where's the source.

I think there is a huge problem with the barrier mechanics for HotS. Auto Attacks are not real projectiles which can be blocked mid air. They are just graphical effects that do damage when they end. Only some abilities like skillshots are using projectiles and can be blocked. (i.e. Frostbolt, Novas Triple Shot). Reinhardt would not feel like Reinhardt if AAs pass through his barrier. Maybe they will have a work-around for this.
