Overwatch 2 Fans Find More Evidence Junker Queen Leak May Be Real

Following the first beta, an Overwatch 2 player claims they found more proof the Junker Queen is the next new character to join the roster.

The Overwatch 2 beta gave players their first taste of what’s to come in the sequel, such as the new team balancing and various character reworks. It also gave players a better look at the world’s newest hero, Sojourn, and recent leaks suggest she may not be the only new addition to the colorful roster as the Junker Queen may be on her way as well. Following these leaks, an investigative player claims to have found more evidence the Junker Queen leaks are legitimate, and she will soon be bringing her brand of chaos to the game.


Overwatch 2 is the sequel to Blizzard’s hit 2016 multiplayer shooter, Overwatch, and it picks up shortly after Blizzard’s series of animated shorts, which sees the titular team reunite to protect the world. The game will once again focus on PvP, which will release first and has undergone several changes from the first game, including reducing teams from six players to five and limiting each team to only one tank. It will also feature a permanent PvE option, set to release at a later time, and lets players choose between narrative-focused story missions and horde mode-style hero missions.

As mentioned above, the Overwatch community has been rampant with speculation recently after reported leaks the Junker Queen would be the second new character introduced in Overwatch 2. Reddit user Stuck-in-Orbit claims to have found more evidence suggesting the leak is real by getting a closer look at the queen’s alleged ability icons. Orbit says in their post, that after adjusting the light hues on the icons and stacking them on top of each other in the right order, players can make out one side of the queen’s face in the background.

Orbit also reiterates the sheer amount of official art Blizzard has released featuring the queen, both in and out of the games. These include various pieces of promotion art, appearances in some characters’ origin tales, and even an in-game spray.

As far as potential new characters go, there is still plenty of mystery surrounding the Junker Queen despite the impact she’s had on several characters. Overwatch originals Junkrart and Roadhog previously called Junkertown, where she rules, home before being kicked out for their destructive tendencies and inability to pay the queen’s monetary demands. Wrecking Ball also lived in Junkertown for a short time, being hailed by the queen and others for his dominance in the town’s mech battle rings before leaving to find his own way.

Overwatch 2 is currently in development.
