Overwatch 2’s new hero, Ramattra, is an Omnic anti-hero and a key part of the game’s next chapter

As part of the Overwatch League Grand Finals, Activision Blizzard has revealed the next hero to come to Overwatch 2. Ramattra is an Omnic radicalized by the Omnic Crisis – the war that directly led to the formation of Overwatch – and humanity’s mistreatment of its people. However, rather than join Overwatch’s agents in their attempts to bring peace to both sides, Ramattra is more interested in adopting his own brand of justice, putting him at odds with the organization.

“Ramattra’s story is complex and multi-faceted and its ultimate goal is to protect its people, but the cost of that goal is yet to be determined,” Blizzard wrote in the official press release. “Ramattra’s story is one of hardship, trauma, and an expanded view of the harsh realities of humanity. Harmony was replaced by dissonance, and Ramattra began to approach his beliefs from a more pragmatic – justifying any means necessary to defend his fellow omnics. As the leader of Null Sector, Ramattra enjoys incredible support from his people, and he is ready to impose his philosophies on our world.”
