Overwatch Comic May Reveal Zarya's New Look in Overwatch 2

Overwatch contains a large cast of playable characters, all with different abilities to use in battle. Among these unique heroes is Zarya, a Tank equipped with a powerful Particle Cannon. Due to this oversized weapon and her distinct pink hair and large blue armor, she is very recognizable on the battlefield. However, some fans believe that this classic look of the character could be about to change.

Recently, Issue 3 of the New Blood digital series of comics was released, giving fans a look at the recruitment of some heroes seen in Overwatch. While this new issue focused on the Support class hero known as Baptiste, some fans believed that this new piece of media did more than add to the lore of the franchise. They suspected that it teased a new design for Zarya that could be featured in the upcoming Overwatch 2.

Interestingly, Zarya was not featured in this most recent edition of the New Blood comic. However, a sketch of her standing beside Cole Cassidy was seen on the last page, previewing the next issue. What made this image notable to Overwatch fans was that it gave Zarya a new look. Her previous short haircut and blue armor were gone. Instead, she wore a heavy winter coat and had long hair, which she had pulled back into a ponytail.

Following the release of this new issue of the New Blood comic, numerous fans went on Reddit to discuss this latest look for Zarya. Some fans liked the new outfit, commenting that the ponytail and coat were an improvement over the current design seen in Overwatch. Others noted that the look for Cassidy, seen in the image, was his Overwatch 2 design, suggesting that this could be the Overwatch 2 design for Zarya as well.

It’s worth noting that Activision Blizzard has not confirmed that this picture of Zarya is her new design for Overwatch 2. With this in mind, it could prove to have no correlation. However, with numerous characters already receiving redesigns, such as Sombra and Bastion, it seems possible that this could be a tease of what Zarya might look like in a future sequel.

Unfortunately, there is no telling when players will know for certain whether this new look for Zarya will be featured in the upcoming game. Currently, players continue to wait for more news about the state of development on Overwatch 2. While there is no idea when the game will eventually release, perhaps this new artwork for Zarya means she could be next to be featured in a character overview trailer.

Overwatch 2 is currently in development.
