Overwatch Sombra Reveal: Blizzard Taking Gamers For A Ride? Update On The Countdown

By on

Blizzard has been teasing the gamers about the release of a new hero in the game Overwatch. However, up to this moment, there is still no clear indication as to when Sombra will be revealed despite a recent countdown on a website, which everyone thought was for the character.

After several forums were created related to the game and the release of the character, gamers across the globe were led to a site called A Moment In Crime. This particular website appeared to be counting down for the launch of Sombra. But, to the dismay of the fans, they kept refreshing the website but the download percentage got stuck at five percent, and it has been there for more than 10 hours now.

There are speculations that the website is being run manually, which means it is being updated by a person and not through an automated program. If that would be the case, then the download percentage is certainly not going to move unless decided by the man who is manipulating it. Also, it would indicate that the site is not a count down for Sombra, instead it is just a teaser again for the character.

It is not yet clear whether or not the trick did come from Blizzard, but it resulted to a lot of disappointed fans. For the past months, the developer of Overwatch has been doing gimmicks to further promote the upcoming hero in the game, however, just like the old saying goes, too much of everything is bad for the doer.

The decision of Blizzard to tease the fans every once in awhile led the gamers to be less interested in the game and the hero as well. They also have gone impatient with the release of Sombra as they have been waiting for her for quite some time already and all they want now is to put their hands on the character.

As of now, the download percentage is still at five percent and it is safe to assume that it is not going to move anytime soon. With that particular detail at hand, it is also safe to say that no one has the information about the release of Sombra, aside from Blizzard, of course.
