Surfacing as far back as February, when fans unearthed notes in one of the game's patches that further allude to the Doomfist Gauntlet that has cropped up throughout the game's scattered lore, fans have more or less willed the character into existence, refusing to let the cagey drip-drip of info from Blizzard stop them. Revealing his true identity as Akande Ogundimu, the statement explains how Doomfist was broken out of custody by the nefarious Talon organisation, who are associated with assassins Reaper and Widowmaker, among other reprobates.
Now that Doomfist has been hinted by Blizzard, it won't be long until "Overwatch" fans will be getting constant updates regarding the character as this has been the penchant of the famed game developer. His gauntlet was put on display at the Overwatch museum in Numbani. In a faux news article from the Times of Numbani, Blizzard has all but confirmed that we'll be seeing Doomfist in Overwatch sooner than expected.
Though with the recent release of the Horizon Lunar Colony map and the references to another new character named Hammond.
The history of Doomfist goes quite deep into the lore of Overwatch having first been teased since the first cinematic trailer for the game. Actor Terry Crews has been campaigning for the role of Doomfist all year, which has led to him visiting Blizzard's headquarters, meeting members of the Overwatch team like Lead Writer Michael Chu, and filming a mock audition video.
EA dismisses Mass Effect DLC cancellation rumours
Despite Andromeda perhaps not living up to expectations, it's a bit saddening to see the series potentially end on a down note. The disappointment with Mass Effect: Andromeda and publisher EA putting the franchise on hiatus may not be good news for fans.
The report narrated that an unidentified aircraft approached the facility and passed through its defense systems without incident, most probably because the prison's technology was hacked by Sombra. The blog post states that Reaper freed the gauntlet user, leading to additional security breaches as well.
"After escaping from the facility, Helix lost track of Ogundimu until he resurfaced in Numbani, where he clashed with the newly introduced OR15 defense robots at the Adawe International Terminal, easily destroying them and reclaiming the Doomfist". This may just be all about revealing some other heroes instead.
With the current Doomfist apparently working with Talon and causing destruction at the Numbani Airport, it appears that Ogundimu is aligned with evil, unlike Ngumi and similar to Adeyemi.
