Sombra Artwork Leaked on Blizzard Store

New Sombra leaks on the rise just days before BlizzCon. Could we finally see an official new hero announcement?

A mysterious addition to the Blizzard Store Monday night included the showcase of a possible new Overwatch character, Sombra. 

Sombra has been the highlight of a clever ARG that has been ongoing since July. However, Blizzard has yet to officially confirm the new hero.

The merchandise page containing the artwork has since been removed, but a mirror of the image was posted to reddit after the discovery on Monday. 

Note that the signature at the bottom right reads "John Polidora", who just happens to be an artist who works on Overwatch.

The latest in the Sombra ARG takes you to the website of a Mexican network company with the idea of "clean energy and Internet access for the entire country at an affordable price"

In a recent post in the Overwatch universe website, LumeriCo claims to have been under scandal as documents released by a hacker, named Sombra, alleging the LumeriCo CEO Guillermo Portero used company funds to bribe public officials and creating a system of kickbacks. 

The extensive ARG has been the center of frustration for some fans, seeming like a never-ending labyrinth. 

Considering this leak has come mere days before BlizzCon there's a solid chance an official Sombra announcement will be out this weekend.
