3 legendary skins for Overwatch's Hanzo is in the making

By Kurtis Chan on Apr 11, 2017

Overwatch Insurrection event is coming to the game very soon and with every new event, there will be new skins for certain heroes. McCree and Widowmaker are getting new skins as promised by Overwatch Game Director Jeff Kaplan. Genji, Mercy, Tracer, Reinhardt, Torbjorn, Bastion and Orisa will be getting new looks as well. Despite all the stunning skins releasing along with event, one hero has still not shown any love by Blizzard since Halloween, and that is Hanzo.

Since the Overwatch Insurrection event is a lore based event, this is most probably why Hanzo is not getting a new skin as he is not related to it. The first and last time Hanzo had a skin was during the Halloween event where Blizzard added Demon Hanzo skin for him, and the community has been requesting for new Hanzo skins for the longest time. Well, be careful what you wish for as Jeff Kaplan said that Hanzo will be getting not one, but three new skins soon.

Battle.net user Orthane expressed his frustration for a lack of Hanzo skins in the Overwatch Forum by saying: "So it looks like even Orisa is getting a new skin, meaning she has the same amount of Unique Event unlocks that Hanzo does now. He has a whole 69 unlocks, he was already the lowest besides Sombra and Orisa, and now that Orisa is getting a new skin, he's still been left out once again. Is there any chance that he will ever get new event items? Getting literally one thing while Tracer and Reinhardt get their what? Like 9th skin? Please Blizzard, favouritism is fine, but you have to at least give SOME love to other heroes, Hanzo in particular, literally 1 unique event unlock and it's a mediocre reskin... what a joke."

Sensing Orthane's frustration, Kaplan quickly comes in to cheer him and the community up. "Hanzo has 3 amazing legendary skins in production right now," Kaplan stated.

Even though it is in production now, Kaplan did not mentioned the ETA of these skins, but hopefully it will come as soon as possible. What kind of skins do you want to see for Hanzo? Will it be based on seasonal events or lore based events? Let us know!
