This happens to be the landmark fortieth playable hero in Overwatch 2. In what is set to be the first of the three, Venture will be the first non-binary character for the title.

Wrecking Ball, a widely loved character from the Overwatch 2 franchise, will also get a slight rework in Season 10. This means players will have two new hero kits to experiment with when the update arrives.
