It seems that Overwatch's next hero isn't going to be a gorilla as many had opined. Instead, the Overwatch Twitter has revealed what seems to be a rolling mech-using...hamster. Yes...you read it right.

According to the Overwatch Wiki:

"Hammond" was the name given to one of the test subjects at the Horizon Lunar Colony. His official designation was Specimen 8. and he's a hamster.

Before the base's fall, Hammond escaped from his cage. Dr. Zhang noted his absence, but few within the base gave it much heed. Hammond possibly escaped into the base's ventilation system, as in the same timeframe, Flores noted strange noises coming from the system.

Years later, Lucheng Interstellar was able to retrieve information from Horizon's still-operating monitoring system. Hammond was noted to be missing from the base.
